The Council Of Music Makers has been very involved in the UK government-led Economics Of Music Streaming projects that were initiated by an inquiry led by the Digital, Culture, Media & Sport Select Committee in the UK Parliament (now the Culture, Media & Sport Select Committee).

Those projects have been led by the Department For Culture, Media & Sport and the Intellectual Property Office, with the Competition & Markets Authority also undertaking a market study. Below are links to some key outputs and reports.
