    ◎美國音樂出版協會NMPA及其會員音樂出版商提醒歌曲創作者和其他出版商,Spotify和其他數位音樂串流媒體到目前為止「不會告知」他們正計劃對美國版權版稅委員會所做出的「在5年內把支付歌曲創作者的機械版稅增加到44%」的正式決定進行上訴。Apple Music則表示他們不會對此增加決定提出質疑。

    ◎美國版權版稅委員會日前向聯邦公報公佈了歌曲創作者的機械版稅的最終費率和條款,該規定被首次宣布的一年多之後終於正式公佈。該費率涵蓋2018年至2022年的期間,包括在未來5年內向歌曲創作者支付的總收入百分比從10.5%顯著增加到15.1%,相當於在此期間增加了將近44%。

    詳細全文:

    The NMPA and its member music publishers are reminding songwriters and other publishers that Spotify and other digital music streamers thus far "won't say" if they plan to appeal the 44% increase over five year in mechanical royalties to songwriters made official by the US Copyright Royalty Board this week.

    Apple Music has said they will not contest the increase.

    "The digital music companies now have 30 days to decide whether to appeal that ruling, and in effect declare war against songwriters.," wrote NMPA head David Israelite in an Instagram post. "We will know soon whether some digital companies want to be partners or want to attack the Songwriters who make their businesses possible. "

    This week the US Copyright Royalty Board published the final rates and terms for mechanical royalties for songwriters to the Federal Register, making them official more than a year after they were first announced.

    The rates cover the period from 2018 to 2022 includes a significant increase in the overall percentage of revenue paid to songwriters from 10.5% to 15.1% over the next five years, equating to an almost 44% jump over the period.
