Thanks for sending me a copy of your statement to the Subcommittee on Patents, Copyrights and Trademarks of the Senate Judiciary Committee (as well as the other statements and submissions pro and con, including those of Barbara Ringer, Ralph Oman, Richard Colby, Irwin Karp, and others).
We at Warner Bros. Music believe that the U. S. Supreme Court decided Mills Music sobrectly, and that this result should not now be overturned legislatively.

I have read the statement of your position which you presented on behalf of music publishers at the November 20th hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on copyrights chaired by Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) relating to s. 1384, the bill to legislatively reverse the United States Supreme Court in the Mills Music case.
I think the statement covers all of the important aspects of our role as music publishers and I was particularly interested in the fact that the two writers you quoted, Burton Lane and Marvin Hamlisch, have both had long-term agreements with Chappell.
There is absolutely no question in my mind that welk Music's activities as well as those of many other publishers, including ourselves, have made it possible for songwriters to hone their skills and reach varying degrees of success in our business.
I heartily support the position you presented at the hearing.
