  • December 20, 2021 — In 2018, the federal government enacted the Music Modernization Act to help not only modernize copyright-related issues, but to address new forms of technology such as digital streaming. The U.S. Copyright Office has been diligently working to implement the MMA, though they face continued challenges.
     
    Wisconsin Congressman Scott Fitzgerald, a member of the U.S. House of Representative Judiciary Committee, is making further reform of this law a priority. He, along with some of his fellow committee members, sent a letter to the Director of the U.S. Copyright Office advocating for a comprehensive, bulk access database. The U.S. Copyright Office has long recognized the difficulties with fractured and incomplete listings of ownership data for musical works. A comprehensive database would benefit musicians and end users alike, by creating a fair, transparent system. This would increase efficiency and transparency and, hopefully, lower costs for end usersRead more.
  • December 9, 2021 — Since 1994, the Tavern League of Wisconsin (TLW) has committed to eliminating drunk driving from Wisconsin's roadways with the operation of its SafeRide® program, which provides free rides home to patrons of TLW member establishments. The program's success is documented in results from a recent annual SafeRide® Survey of more than 60 counties in the state of Wisconsin.

    In 2020-21, the SafeRide® program provided 42,347 free rides home from 2,006 TLW-member establishments — the number of participating businesses has increased by nearly 300 since 2019. The program has provided over 1,000,000 rides since 2004.

    Wisconsin has witnessed a 44% decline in OWI convictions since 2007 and almost a 50% decline in alcohol-related fatalities during that same time period. Read more.
  • November 10, 2021 — Assembly Bill 587 and Senate Bill 572 prohibit a swipe fee from being imposed against a merchant on only the tax portion of a transaction when a purchase is made using a credit card.
    Providing this service to the state comes at a cost to the retailer, especially when a purchase by a consumer is made with a credit card. Credit card companies assess a fee to every transaction made with a credit card, including the tax portion of the transaction. Wisconsin’s Main Street retailers are losing money, while the credit card companies profit on the collection of state taxes. Read more.
  • October 12, 2021 — It was beyond wonderful to see everyone at the 2021 Fall Convention and Tradeshow in Appleton last month where we had a record 891 registrants! Check out all the photos on the TLW Facebook page, capturing special moments like Pete Madland's retirement party, the trade show and overall fun. Read more.
