This week, with the Music Modernization Act’s passage imminent, Ryan talks about what the next crusade should be for indie artists. He brings up two strong candidates: getting owners of sound recordings paid on terrestrial radio, and creating “Ethical Pool” royalties on streaming services so that indie artists can get paid more on platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.
