Congresswoman Judy Chu (D-CA) has joined the growing list of co-sponsors of H.R. 4079, the Songwriter Equity Act. Rep. Chu serves on the House Judiciary Committee, where she is a member of the Intellectual Property (IP) and the Internet subcommittee. Recognizing the critical need to protect the rights of the creative community in the U.S., Rep. Chu spearheaded the creation of the Congressional Creative Rights Caucus (CRC) last year. Spanning both ends of the political spectrum and including Representatives from all across the country, the CRC now boasts 43 members and educates members of Congress and the general public about the importance of preserving and protecting the rights of the creative community.
