THE FAIRNESS IN MUSIC LICENSING ACT OF 1998:

Rock Of Ages Entertainment Logo.

Under the Fairness in Music Licensing Act of 1998, bars and restaurants of less than 3,700 square feet and retail stores of less than 2,000 square feet that play music via radio or television sets are exempt from paying performance royalty fees. A protest against the Fairness in Music Licensing Act was filed by music publishers and songwriters residing in EU countries signatory to the Berne Convention, led by the Irish Music Rights Organization.

The protestors claimed that the exemption violated World Trade Organization (WTO) intellectual property rules. The claim was referred to the WTO dispute resolution and panel, which decided in July 2001 that the claim was justified and gave the United States until the end of 2001 to repeal the offending legislation or face damages of $1.1 million per. year retroactive to 1998. In 2002, the United States submitted a status report on what it assured the WTO were productive discussions directed toward arriving at a compensatory series of subsidies for the benefit of EU music creators. As of this writing, a final settlement had not been reached.
