Trump signs bill that ensures music streaming services pay artist royalties

The bill, which overhauls the way music is licensed and songwriters are compensated, won bipartisan support in Congress and is backed by the music industry.

In short, the act has three main pieces of legislation, which help artists get paid easier when their music is streamed online, allows artists who recorded tracks before 1972 get paid when their music is streamed online and helps artists and sound engineers get paid easier when their music is streamed on satellite radio services.

Under the act, a majority of music creators will have a more reliable way of collecting the money that they're due.

Also present were the Doobie Brothers guitarist Jeff Baxter, MercyMe, The Beach Boys' Mike Love, Craig Morgan, John Rich and Sam Moore.

Trump met with Kanye West later that day, though West wasn't in attendance for the signing.

"This important legislation will benefit songwriters, legacy recording artists, producers, digital streaming services, and music listeners".
