The four major broadcast networks, ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, organised and totally underwrote the incredible coming together of the entertainment industry to directly help victims and their families by raising funds for the specially created September 11 Telethon Fund, which is being administered, at no cost to the Telethon Fund, by the United Way.
The distributors' net proceeds from the CDs and DVD's will go to the September 11 Telethon Fund. All five music companies will suspend label exclusivity clauses for their artists, as well as waive all publishing fees under their control in connection with the sale of the CD and DVD. As they did for the broadcast, all the performers have also waived all of their rights and fees.

Bruce Springsteen performing "My City Of Ruin"
