    What the Paperchain team has been reading about rights, royalties, data, music tech & blockchain — August 04 2017

    Here’s How You Know Mic-Coalition “Shiv Act” Is About Screwing Songwriters Not Transparency But here is where the bill is particular cruel.

This actually creates a mechanism for depriving every songwriter of legal fees and statutory damages, on every song ever written.
