#1440: Music Modernization Act to aid artists, Nisus Writer Pro 3.0 reviewed, TechSoup helps nonprofits get tech discounts

Want to see musicians make a decent living from music streamed via Apple Music or Spotify? See Glenn Fleishman’s coverage of the Music Modernization Act here in the United States, a bipartisan bill that aims to improve the process for everyone involved in music streaming. More interested in serious word processing productivity? Joe Kissell reviews the just-released Nisus Writer Pro 3.0, which is a must for, as he says, anyone who “makes words dance for a living.” Finally, if you’re involved in a nonprofit of any sort, Jeff Porten shows how TechSoup can save your group money on hardware and software. Notable Mac app releases this week include Carbon Copy Cloner 5.1.6, Retrospect 15.6, OmniFocus 3.1.2, Twitterrific 5.3.7, and PopChar X 8.5.
