Mission Statement

MFM seeks to bring together musicians of all kinds in the cause of their mutual self-betterment, and to elevate their work to the level of a true profession.


MFM and the music community must collaborate and act collectively in order to fight unfair pay especially by the the digital service providers, such as Spotify, YouTube.


MFM supports political actions leading to the amendment of the “Safe Harbor” provision (section 512) of the DMCA.

And it backs the American Music Fairness Act which demands musicians getting paid for AM/FM radio airplay.

Further details of these campaigns as well as announcements of official MFM action in this regard, will be forthcoming.
