The Study Concerning Fair Compensation for Music Creators in the Digital Age
October 2014 - Organizations representing thousands of songwriters and composers from around the world met in Nashville at the annual CIAM Congress and endorsed the Study Concerning Fair Compensation for Music Creators in the Digital Age. The study was written by Pierre Lalonde, an economist with extensive experience in cultural and copyright issues. He used financial and economic data to explore the current structure of the digital streaming market for music and compared it to other sectors that distribute creative content in order to come up with appropriate valuation of musical works and the equitable split of revenues.
