Mobile App Best Practices A Meaningful Step Forward

The App Association announced today on Capitol Hill – joined by House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte – new “best practices” for app companies using creative works to help prevent the theft of those works via mobile apps.

Music is increasingly accessed on smart phones, and far too often, it’s the Wild West when it comes to the proliferation of rogue music apps that confuse consumers. We applaud ACT and its app developer members for their commitment to respecting intellectual property. This is a meaningful step forward and yet another demonstration of the vital role our Internet partners can play in steering fans to legitimate music sources.
