Streaming Bill

On December 3rd, a bill in parliament would ensure that music streaming paid creators a fair share of revenues, using Equitable Remuneration. This would make for a fairer system for all. We would encourage members to write to their MP asking them to support

Kevin Brennan MP’s Copyright (Rights and Remuneration of Musicians, Etc.) Bill.

Personal letters are best, introduce yourself and tell them what you do for a job and why their support for this bill is important to you. An example of what you make from streaming royalties in a year versus physical might also be helpful. Remember to include your full name and postal address so that they know you are a constituent.



All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Music – EU Working Survey

The APPG on Music launched a cross-party enquiry to the barriers facing those working in music in the EU.  If any of your work in or from the EU has been impacted by Brexit, please fill in their survey  This includes anything like buying equipment, visas for working, shipping lacquers, etc.

If you feel there is more you would like to add, but the survey does not cover it. Please email Matt Taylor who leads our Brexit work;

Please send any comments before 18th November.
