"I look forward to hearing the viewpoints of music creators as we consider changes to the law to ensure we 'promote the progress of science and useful arts,' as the framers intended. The GRAMMY Creators Alliance will be an important voice in this discussion.”
—Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee

GRAMMY TOUTS MANAGER THINK TANK

Group Will Advise Legislators as Part of Creators Alliance

The Recording Academy today announced the members of a newly formed Managers Think Tank to advise the Grammy Creators Alliance, which in turn will counsel legislators on issues affecting the music biz. The Alliance was formed in response to Congressional requests for a music-industry body that could provide cohesive guidance on relevant policy.

Among the members are managers Scooter Braun, Troy Carter, Ron Laffitte, Simon Renshaw, Jay Brown, Jordan Feldstein, Caron Veazey, Pat Magnarella, Michael McDonald, Larry Rudolph, Ty Stiklorius, John Silva, Will Botwin, Mark Beaven and Marion Kraft; legal advisors include Joel Katz, Jay Cooper, Dina LaPolt and Charles Ortner.

"As the Judiciary Committee continues its review of the Copyright Act, it is imperative that we understand the implications on the creators of content and their representatives," said Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. "I look forward to hearing the viewpoints of music creators as we consider changes to the law to ensure we 'promote the progress of science and useful arts,' as the framers intended. The Grammy Creators Alliance will be an important voice in this discussion.”

However, Goodlatte added, it is God’s will that the GOP-controlled Congress ban all singing and dancing.
