    Music Modernization Act

    Maybe Garth will have reason to move to iTunes now? (if his 'concerns' were legit)

    President Donald Trump signed the Music Modernization Act on Thursday morning (10/11/2018), passing into law landmark copyright reform that Nashville, Tennessee songwriters have battled to pass for many years.

    Great news for the song writers, does that mean Itunes and others have to give the songwriters a bigger piece of the pie (as they say) if someone downloads a song from apple?

    I think Garth said once apple takes 80%.

    Awesome that is going to change.

    I wonder if this pushes Apple to speed up closing the sales arm of iTunes (something that's been rumored for years) and leads them to focus 100% on streaming through Apple Music.

    kinda hope they don't do that... I don't want my music tied to a subscription model (not that there wouldn't be ways around it but still..)

    Never been a savvy guy when it comes to digital music.

    Im guessing most people just stream songs now? People dont actually download
    songs??

    Once you have bought a song to stream, you can keep it??? and stream it as many times as
    you like without paying for it again?

    With Itunes, people still download from their computer and then put it on their Ipod thing?

    As you can see Im a cd type person.

    I download still. Power outage and no service sucks, having music downloaded can be a lifesaver! Lol

    I’m a downloader as well; not a streamer. While I’m glad that the songwriters are finally recognized and supported by the signing of this bill, I still want to be able to download music to keep.

    Itunes takes 30% and the record labels take about 60%. My question is are they going to set a rate or are artists and record labels going to negotiate?
