I had the honor of meeting the founder Blake Morgan last year at CMJ.  If you feel compelled to sign the petition that would be helpful as well.  There is no reason why Artists should NOT get paid for radio play while the radio stations collect ad revenue thanks to the artists work.

The United States is the only democratic country in the world where artists don’t get paid for radio airplay.

The short list of countries that share the United States’ position on this issue includes Iran, North Korea, China, Vietnam, and Rwanda.

As a result of not paying their artists for radio airplay here in the United States, other democratic countries aren’t paying American artists in their countries.
