Fix Streaming campaign

It’s time for a complete re-set of streaming

Streaming has transformed the way we listen to and discover music. But the law has not kept up with the pace of technological change.

As a result, songwriters are not paid fairly when their music is streamed. That’s why we’re campaigning with the MU, songwriters and artists to #FixStreaming.

What’s changed?

In a revolutionary report, the DCMS Select Committee of MPs called for a “complete reset” of music streaming so that songwriters, composers, and artists, who currently receive “pitiful returns”, are fairly rewarded.

This is after months of campaigning and thanks to you and almost 18,000 other songwriters, composers and performers, who called for a music streaming inquiry. The Committee heard in detail how streaming is affecting songwriters, composers and performers.

Hundreds of the UK’s biggest artists and over 40 Conservative MPs wrote to the Prime Minister, supporting our campaign and asking that we put the value of music back in the hands of music makers.

The Government established industry groups to look at, and report back on, issues including data management and contract transparency.
