RMA-NY supports CCC protesting Google

On June 21st, the RMA-NY helped the CCC (Content Creators Coalition) protest Google’s new planned unfair treatment of artists and content creators online.  Google had threatened to block indie artists from YouTube if they did not sign away their rights under a contract that would pay far below acceptable rates.  The protest had an immediate effect and Google has postponed its decision in hopes of reaching a deal with the indie record labels.
