Are musicians getting a raw deal from music streaming?

TMT

With artists pushing for reform to the music streaming economy, and rates of pay for streaming the lowest they have ever been, it’s been only a matter of time before the industry caught the attention of UK policymakers.

Conan D'Arcy, Megan Stagman and Nick Hendrix discuss the current landscape of the UK music industry to analyse why it has been hitting the headlines, and why it is attracting political and regulatory attention.

They focus on the announcement this week from the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority, the CMA on its intention to launch a market study into music streaming, and what it means for businesses and investors.
