AFM, drop the case against Austin Wintory
Composer Austin Wintory, is facing a $50,000 fine from the American Federation of Musicians. As a composer and musician Austin has been forced to work without union sanction because the AFM had failed to sign any video game companies to work with them in almost two years. Under the 2012 contract, no union member had been allowed to work on a new video game soundtrack. Austin is being punished for simply doing his job under those circumstances. No union should ever bully its members let alone selectively punish them for earning a living under adverse conditions that the union itself created. The signing of this petition is not attack on unionism! It's simply a fair demand: AFM, drop the case against Austin Wintory, a case against all composers/musicians who earn a living doing what they love-music.
