BLOG: Fair Trade For Music?
Fair Trade For Music?
Published 30 April 2009 by TM

Interesting article (and user comments) from The Guardian here, about the issues of artists being fairly remunerated for their work in an age of 'free' downloads. Nice to see the media taking a non-judgemental, pro-music creator stance for once.

I do genuinely believe that most music fans want to do the right thing and commit to the music they love. Maybe this is a way forward.

FWIW, we as a label have been trying to negotiate with the likes of and Youtube for what seems like years (and probably is). While there is no evidence yet that advertising-funded models like Spotify are anywhere near providing a realistic source of income for labels and artists alike, they should certainly be encouraged in their attempts.
