Britse artiesten eisen meer zeggenschap

Dit is een gearchiveerd bericht


Verschillende grote Britse namen, waaronder Radiohead, Robbie Williams en Kaiser Chiefs hebben zich verenigd in de Featured Artists' Coalition. Ze eisen meer zeggenschap over de wijze waarop muziek wordt verspreid in dit digitale tijdperk en maakten hiertoe een charter op dat ze door zoveel mogelijk muzikanten willen laten ondertekenen.

"A charter for fair play in the digital age"

We believe that all music artistes should control their destiny because ultimately it is their art and endeavours that create the pleasure and emotion enjoyed by so many.

This means that:
• artists should retain ultimate ownership of their music
• all agreements should be fairly conducted and transparently accounted
• rights’ holders should have a fiduciary duty of care to the originator of those rights and must always explain how any agreement may affect how their work is exploited.

This will be achieved by:
• changing artists’ approach to agreements
• changing the recorded music and technology companies’ treatment of artist rights and incomes
• up-dating laws to reflect the new music landscape.

So we will campaign for laws, regulations, business practices and policies that protect artists’ rights.

We will stand up for all artists by engaging with government, music and technology companies, and collection societies. We will argue for fair play and will expose unfair practices.
