The 2018 Music Modernization Act (MMA), which was passed by U.S. Senators last month (Sep18), has always been campaigned for by musicians and industry figures and reforms music licensing to allow songwriters and artists to allow songwriters to receive payments for pre-1972 recordings and increases their earnings from streaming services. The MLC will ensure that payouts end up with the correct artists and labels.

"There was something about putting this hat on that made me feel like Superman", West said, as part of a lengthy monologue that touched on topics such as his mental health to employment, prison reform, and more.

Kanye West was also due to meet Trump, but wasn't present at the bill signing. The president gave prepared comments citing the MMA a milestone that would "close loopholes" in copyright law and assist music creators to get paid. "They're not going to be treated unfairly anymore", said Trump.

Spotify's General Counsel and VP Business & Legal Affairs, Horacio Gutierrez: "One of our core missions at Spotify is to enable a million artists to make a good living from what they love: creating and performing music. This important legislation will benefit songwriters, legacy recording artists, producers, digital streaming services, and music listeners". "We thank the members of Congress who championed this issue throughout the past several years to bring music law into the 21st century". We build factories here in America to create jobs.

At a White House ceremony packed with "A-list" singers, songwriters, and producers, President Donald Trump signed into law the Music Modernization Act (MMA), originally sponsored by Congressman Bob Goodlatte (VA-6).

"Let's stop worrying about the future all we have is today", Kanye expressed in his lengthy speech.
