Come on, its called the “Internet Radio Fairness Act”! It is all about making sure the masses have fair access to entertainment. Celebrities need to pay their fair share. Like Obama says, “at some point you have made enough money.”
A coalition of 125 celebrity musicians, including pop singer Katy Perry, have joined forces with anti-tax advocates including Grover Norquist and the National Taxpayers Union (NTU) to oppose an intellectual property “reform” bill that critics charge expands government to the detriment of the free market.
Artists are concerned that if passed, the bill would amount to government artificially limiting the earnings that musicians – celebrity and not – are able to make from their trade in the marketplace.
That has Perry and others including rapper Ludacris, Britney Spears, Rihanna, Cee Lo Green, Sheryl Crow, Maroon 5, Pink Floyd and Rush speaking out via a letter published this month in Billboard magazine.
What’s with these wealthy one percenters, huh? I mean, the greedy bastards just want to screw the 99 percent every chance they get. It’s time they paid their fair share.
