The Songwriters Association of Canada (SAC) as a member organization of Music Creators North America (MCNA) is a signatory to an open letter to the U.S. Department of Justice voicing our collective support for the current system of fractional licensing. 

This currently allows each owner and/or creator of a co-owned copyright to license their portion of the work.  The Department of Justice initiative would introduce a one hundred percent licensing system that could risk the collapse of the music creator economy.  

MCNA is the alliance comprised of songwriter and composer organizations in Canada and the US, and represents thousands of music creators.  Click here to review the entire open letter…
