Iron Maiden, David Gilmour Involved in Featured Artists Coalition
According to a posting on the Brain Damage web site, IRON MAIDEN and PINK FLOYD's David Gilmour are among the artists who have signed up for the Featured Artists Coalition. FAC campaigns for the protection of performers' and musicians' rights. They want all artists to have more control of their music and a much fairer share of the profits it generates in the digital age. Their aim is to speak with one voice to help artists strike a new bargain with record companies, digital distributors and others, and are campaigning for specific changes.
