Music Modernization Act passed unanimously by the House of Representatives

I realise this is a US law, not a UK or global one, but on the face of it this looks like an encouraging development... One aim is to "Provide a statutory right to recognition for adjunct creators, including producers, sound engineers, and mixers."

Yeah, it was the part about the rights of producers/engineers that got my attention.

In terms of the 'Classics' it sounds more like a missed opportunity than a worsening of the status quo. Still, looks like a big missed op...

Indeed, the fundamentals are surprisingly good, so I'll take that :)
