Cary Sherman discusses changes in the music industry and music issues before Congress. As distribution shifted deeper into streaming, musicians and songwriters were pressing for new payment laws. Payment methods varied, depending on whether the artist’s music was played on radio, on interactive services like Spotify and Rhapsody, or on noninteractive services like Pandora. Musicians were not paid at all if their music was aired on radio, but songwriters were paid. Congress and the Department of Justice were among those assessing the state of the music industry. Mr. Sherman was chair and chief executive officer of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), which represents music labels. close
