Taking place on Monday 19 February, 5-6pm. 

In this free one hour webinar for music-makers and their managers we will update you on the ongoing work to fix streaming and explain how you can help. We will cover…

The UK music industry’s new metadata code – and how you can help get music-makers credited and songwriters paid.

The UK music industry’s new transparency code – and how you can use it to get more information about how your music is being monetised by streaming services. 

The ongoing campaign to address issues around music-maker remuneration in streaming – and how you can play your part. 

The webinar will be led by CMU’s Chris Cooke – with representatives from the Featured Artists Coalition, Musicians’ Union, Ivors Academy, Music Producers Guild and Music Managers Forum answering your questions.

BACKGROUND

After the Culture, Media & Sport Select Committee in the UK Parliament called for a “complete reset” of music streaming in 2021, the UK government instigated a number of projects seeking industry-led solutions to deal with data issues, transparency issues and remuneration issues. 

All five CMM organisations – Featured Artists Coalition, Musicians’ Union, Ivors Academy, Music Producers Guild and Music Managers Forum – have been actively involved in this work, alongside representatives for record labels, music distributors, music publishers, collecting societies and streaming services, and the UK’s Intellectual Property Office. 

Industry codes have now been agreed around metadata and transparency. These provide a basic framework for addressing data and transparency issues. In this webinar we will explain what the issues are, how the codes will help and – crucially – what music-makers and their managers should be doing now to maximise the potential of these agreements. 

There has been much less progress on remuneration issues, however a new remuneration working group is set to meet very soon. There is a lot more campaigning to be done on these – and other issues – and in this webinar we will explain the process, what is planned and how music-makers and their managers can support this work to bring about positive change.
