Like it or not, being a musician means tackling copyrights, licensing, royalties and a world of other legal issues. And with the music industry shifting in regards to digital music, more than ever musician rights and revenues hang in the balance as new laws are passed. Just Plain Folks seeks to be a unified voice for its membership as music enters the political arena — to keep our members aware of critical elections and events, and simply to provide an open forum for political discussion as it applies to the music community.
Our Political Discussion Forum is the place for up-to-the-minute news and debate. We warmly welcome information on politics from countries outside of the USA as well. Good ideas (and bad ideas) exist everywhere! Most of all, we ask our members to be open minded and respectful of the wide diversity of opinions and views. Please refrain from attacking fellow musical peers or posting intentionally inflamatory statements. While we will inevitably have some differing opinions and world views, after the dust settles our community needs a unified voice, if we want to see our musical rights protected.
