A2IM Salutes Martin Mills

A2IM released the following statement today: “Our colleague and board member Martin Mills, Founder and Chairman of the Beggars Group, provided testimony last week at the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee’s antitrust subcommittee hearing on the acquisition of EMI’s recorded music business by Universal Music Group. In his testimony, he noted that the proposed acquisition would have a detrimental effect on the independent recording industry and recording artist community and that it would contribute to an uneven playing field for the recording industry as a whole. Not only does A2IM applaud Mills for courageously taking a stand on behalf of the entire independent music community, A2IM also supports his assessment and recommends in the strongest terms that the proposed Universal/EMI merger be denied. We also reaffirm our support of our European Impala independent music label colleagues in their efforts to block the proposed Universal/EMI transaction in Europe.”
