The ‘New NAFTA’ Isn’t Helping the Music Industry, Major Labels Say

Story :

Mitch Glazier, President of the Recording Industry Association of America, criticized the USMCA. The RIAA represents the interests of the ‘big three’ major labels — Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group, and Universal Music Group.

According to Glazier, the USMCA doesn’t provide adequate modern copyright protections for American creators. Instead, the proposal advances out-of-date safe harbor provisions.

Safe harbor provisions have long protected tech companies and ISPs from liability over piracy. The RIAA has long criticized the provisions for placing the burden on creators to monitor their own content online.

The USMCA will reportedly extend these provisions. The summary agreement released on Monday states the new NAFTA will establish “appropriate copyright safe harbors to provide protection for IP and predictability for legitimate enterprises that do not directly benefit from the infringement, consistent with United States law.”
