Members of several 1950s and '60s groups, including the Platters,
Drifters and Box Tops, are expected to attend a congressional
hearing Wednesday (May 5) in support of the proposed Truth in Rock Act,
according to John Edgell, press secretary to Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio.
The act would help artists fight impostors who use their names. The bill,
introduced last month, is being reviewed by the House Judiciary Committee's
Intellectual Property Subcommittee.
