VERSED: The ASCAP Podcast / Ep. 15 - Rep. Adam Schiff & Paul Williams
The latest episode of VERSED reprises a critical session from ASCAP Experience: Home Edition in July 2020. We invited Congressman Adam Schiff and ASCAP President Paul Williams to discuss what Congress is doing to include music professionals in coronavirus relief efforts, the need for federal guidelines on restarting live performances at music venues, and what’s at stake in the Department of Justice’s upcoming review of the ASCAP and BMI consent decrees. Schiff is one of the fiercest champions of creators' rights in Washington - he led the effort in Congress to secure economic relief benefits for freelance and contract workers in the entertainment industry in the wake of coronavirus. Listen in to their important, impactful conversation to find out how you can help to create positive change for the American music community.
