Paul McCartney
Over the station's opposition to the Music Modernization Act (MMA)...

Paul McCartney and Stevie Nicks have joined 150 musicians in calls to boycott SiriusXM.

The move comes as SiriusXM continues its opposition to the Music Modernization Act (MMA), making it the only broadcaster to do so.

Passed unanimously in the Senate Judiciary Committee and House of Representatives earlier in the year, the Music Modernization Act (MMA) seeks to change music copyright protection for songwriters in light of the growth of the digital and streaming marketplace.

SiriusXM have opposed portions of the bill, with songwriter Ross Golan penning a letter in response.

Check out the full text of the letter on Variety - more than 150 songwriters have signed it, including Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks, Katy Perry, Karen O, Charlie Puth, and many more.

SiriusXM have since responded to the letter, issuing a statement with some suggested amendments to the bill.
