Member News :
By Terry Hart -- On September 5, 1787, New Jersey Delegate David Brearly submitted the final language of the Copyright Clause to the members of the US Constitutional Convention...the first Copyright Act would not be signed into law until May 31, 1790. But it seems appropriate to mark this date as an important one in US copyright history.

By Clyde Smith -- Music videos using social media combined with mobile and web technologies continue to break new and entertaining ground. For a little fun I present three music videos beginning with Father Tiger's "Shell" which uses over 5000 images processed through Instagram.
By Geeta Dayal -- David Byrne's impressive output over the past four decades reaches far beyond his work as a musician, most famously in Talking Heads and in numerous solo albums and collaborations....in his new wide-ranging tome, How Music Works, he finally tackles it head-on.
Rock On! The Compact Disc Turns 30
By Heather Kelly -- On October 1, 1982, the first commercial compact disc, Billy Joel's 52nd Street, was released in Japan. In the 30 years since, hundreds of billions of CDs have been sold, Joel has stopped recording pop music and the music industry has moved on to the next hot medium.

By Shaun Letang -- iTunes is a platform to sell your music, NOT a marketing tool.
By Eliot Van Buskirk -- At first blush, you might think the world doesn't need a new online radio service - not when there are already so many of them, and they're already so good at what they do. That's what we thought too, until we delved into Radionomy's unique offering, which rolls out to United States users for the first time on Tuesday.
By CBS News -- [Personal Note: For the past few years, I've had the pleasure of overseeing Andy's music publishing enterprise. He was warm, ingratiating, and always interested in the progress of his company. Although we all know how gifted Andy was as a vocalist, few know how grounded his talent was in solid musicianship. When I mentioned I was working with Andy to legendary composer, arranger Johnny Mandel, who, along with Dave Grusen and others, were staff arrangers on Andy's TV show in the 60's, he said, "Andy was one of the best musicians I ever worked with." Apparently, the arrangers used to love to try to throw Andy curves by coming up with the most complicated arrangements they could dream up for him to maneuver through. Andy would never fail to breeze through them as if he'd performed them for years. Of course, Andy's wonderful recordings will always be part of the soundtracks of our lives but we'll all be reminded of Andy, himself, year after year, when, like Bing Crosby's classic recording of "White Christmas," Andy's iconic rendition of "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" brightens our holiday seasons for eternity. I'll miss him. DK]
By Eliot Van Buskirk -- The Glenn Gould estate authorized the late performer's tacit endorsement of Piano Invention, a classical music-playing app released today for free in the iTunes app store for iPhone and iPad. Who's Glenn Gould? Let me google that for you. Anyway, in 1969, good old Glenn Gould apparently had the idea that music would be created by gestures, rather than by playing individual notes on a piano. In 2012, he's starting to be right.
