Economics of music streaming

This research aims to improve the regulation of music creator remuneration in light of streaming technology.

The growing dissatisfaction with musicians’ earnings from streaming and impact of the pandemic on the music industry led to the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee's decision to examine the economics of music streaming.

This research aims to help decisions makers to address the issues raised in the inquiry, in particular relating to the copyright structures and contractual management of copyright that impacts the balance of stakeholders rights and remuneration from streaming in the music industry.

This research investigates the copyright and related rights around music streaming, in particular how this impacts the remuneration of music creators in light of streaming technologies. It adds to the discourse and argues for regulatory changes that will rebalance stakeholder rights to enable and support a fairer music industry ecosystem.
