Another source to investigate on the AFM/RMA conflict.
Recently I have been trying to comprehend the current heat between the American Federation of Musicians (AFM) and the Recording Musicians Association (RMA):
- Clash of the Titans
A general introduction.
- Sending Out an S.O.S.
A personal view of the effects on the Music Performance Fund.
A resource that I missed provides yet another perspective.
A few interesting posts on the AFM/RMA conflict include:
- Response to the AFM Wakeup Call “Manifesto“
- Response from AFM President Tom Lee on the issue of potential lawsuits
- “RMA Smoke and Mirrors”
I have had serious apprehensions about the AFM over the years but hearing that President Lee and the IEB are turning the screw on the RMA gives me hope. The RMA is the most destructive organization to the profession on the landscape, in my opinion, and should not be allowed to control the marketplace.
