since this use would be identical not similar. This gives the public the mechanical trust that was feared in 1909 and has become a reality today.
When Congress granted relief with public law 92–140, the suggested retail of records were $3.98. Now they are $6.98. You were told that if the “pirates” or re-recorders were out of business, prices would drop. Have you or your family purchased a $3.98 record lately?
If this committee does not question some of these illegal practices immediately, then you will help this industry raise the price of a 35¢ manufactured cost album to $8.98 within three years and a 50¢ manufactured cost tape to $9.98 in the same period of time.
The composer has been deprived of one-half of his royalties paid to the publisher because the publisher has refused to accept the 2c compulsory licensee fee.
You gentlemen must clarify the compulsory license provision for the musical composition fired prior to February 15, 1972, by stating that one use is "similar" to all other uses, and specifically in section 115, page 21, line 21, drop the word not so that it reads "a person may obtain a compulsory license for use of the work in the duplication of a sound recording made by another”. This change will stop the mechanical trust from growing until your committee has had time to verify who actually controls the majority of major copyrights in the l'.S., allow the composer an adequate return for his work and stop the raise of prices to the public.
I have attached to this speech a copy of my catalog of music that the public is currently being deprired of the opportunity to own.
I only hope you gentlemen and Congress, as the hit record in 1971 stated, “Won't Get Fooled Again". Thank you,
