Forbes: Music Publishers Continue To Seek Handouts Despite DOJ Sanctions

Check out this article from Forbes highlighting how PROs are limiting competition.

"The accessibility of music driven by the digital revolution has enabled music to pervade consumers lives more than ever. With services from Pandora iHeartMedia Sirius XM Radio SIRI +1.28%Apple AAPL +1.59% and Spotify, people enjoy music in places and ways never imagined just a few short years ago. For artists, the revolution has brought new platforms to reach hundreds of millions of consumers in unprecedented ways. Scope and scale to use consulting industry lexicon.


Yet these advances seem to be under perpetual threat from big corporate interests seeking to hang on to the days when they and their allies in government held all the cards in a rigged deck.  Recently, I highlighted one such threat posed by the efforts of music publishing corporations and Performance Rights Organizations (PRO) to break free of decades old settlements with the Department of Justice known as “Consent Decrees.”

Lowering Allowable BAC to .05 will only Instill Fear in Responsible Consumers MLBA Reacts to NTSB Recommendation to Lower National BAC to .05

MLBA Reacts to NTSB Recommendation to Lower National BAC to .05


LANSING, MI – The recommendation by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) to lower the allowable blood alcohol content (BAC) from .08 to .05 is miscalculated and misguided according to the Michigan Licensed Beverage Association (MLBA).

The MLBA is opposed to drunk driving and does not dispute the impact that drunk driving has on crashes, but the MLBA does not feel that lowering the BAC to .05 is the answer. The focus should instead be targeted on repeat offenders and drivers with a BAC of .10 or higher.

“The MLBA does not believe the .05 is the issue that needs to be addressed,” said MLBA Executive Director Scott Ellis, who worked in law enforcement for nearly 20 years. “We need to be addressing the repeat offenders to get them help for their alcohol dependency, whether that is through sobriety court or some other means to treat the underlying issues. That’s the subject that should be at hand.”

Flint Water Crisis Toxic to Michigan Hospitality Industry

January 21, 2016
For Immediate Release


Flint Water Crisis Toxic to Michigan Hospitality Industry

LANSING, MI – It has been said that water is the essence of life. This holds true not only for individuals, but also for businesses – especially those in the hospitality industry.


“We obviously know that there is a huge water issue in Flint, Michigan, and the issue for residents has been covered extensively,” said Scott Ellis, the Executive Director of the Michigan Licensed Beverage Association. “We are concerned and feel sorry for them, but businesses have not been talked about.”


Without a guarantee that safe water will be served in restaurants, whether served in a glass, as ice or mixed in with carbonated beverages, people are less apt to go out and enjoy dinner or a night of entertainment.


“We’ve had contact from members saying that business is down. Their water is fine, but people are afraid to come into their establishments,” Ellis said. “We need to support these businesses because they are struggling, just as the people of Flint are. They can’t regain the money they’ve lost and they need your help now more than ever.”
