The Music Modernization Act, passed in 2018, is the most significant change to the U.S. copyright law in more than 20 years, and one of the most important for musicians and music librarians in the modern era. This session will provide an overview of the changes and their significance to music librarians, examining what has changed and what has not, with a particular focus on the impact on pre-1972 sound recordings.
