Mission Statement (November 19, 2018)
MFM seeks to bring together musicians from all disciplines, styles, traditions and localities in the cause of their mutual self-betterment; we seek to promote all conditions which benefit the musicians’ community and the music created by it, and oppose all those which do it harm.
MFM and the music community achieved a big victory October 11, 2018: THE MUSIC MODERNIZATION ACT (MMA)
became law. Besides overlooking the MMA for the next 5 years, the Case Act, the Fair Pay Fair Play Act, and the Classics Act will need to be monitored closely. But probably the most important upcoming action concerns 512 reform of the the Digital Millennium Copyright Act's "safe harbor" provisions.
It's a fact: #MakingMusicIsAProfession
