It’s time to put the value of music back where it belongs – in your hands
Streaming is quickly replacing radio as our main means of music listening. But the law has not kept up with the pace of technological change.
As a result, songwriters and performers are not paid fairly when their music is streamed.
We’re working with the MU to fix streaming and keep music alive.
Join us calling on Government to fix streaming and keep music alive
Thanks to you and almost 18,000 other songwriters, composers and performers, a group of MPs launched the music streaming inquiry. They heard in detail how streaming is affecting songwriters, composers and performers.
Now we’re calling on Government to do something about it:
- Change two words in the 1988 Copyright, Designs and Patents Act so that performers receive a fair share of streaming revenue, just like they do with radio
- Make an immediate government referral to the Competition and Markets Authority to address the extraordinary power wielded by multinational corporations over songwriters
- Put in place a regulator to ensure the fair and lawful treatment of music makers
