Written evidence: Economics of Music Streaming - Dr Hayleigh Bosher


The Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee is examining what economic impact music streaming is having on artists, record labels and the sustainability of the wider music industry. Dr Hayleigh Bosher's evidence argues that: 

  • The government should consider the implement a system of equitable remuneration.
  • Require more transparency from record labels and publishers, which is necessary for artists. Claims for data information could be made under the current UK data protection law.
  • Copyright should revert back to the creator after a period of time.
  • ‘Playlisters’ should be regulated by the UK Advertising Standards Agency in the same way as influencers.
