Producers, Mixers and Engineers to Get Digital Royalties in New House Bill

A new bill in the U.S. House of Representatives is being introduced in Congress this week that would give producers, engineers and mixers -- often times the unsung and forgotten heroes in the whole song-making process -- a piece of the digital royalty pie.
