Representatives for music labels and musicians questioned on Economics of Music Streaming

11 November 2022

The Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee examines how the Government, music industry, and musicians have responded to the Committee’s Economics of music streaming report, one year on from its release.


Tuesday 15 November 2022

At 10.00am

  • Will Page, Visiting fellow, London School of Economics
  • Hayleigh Bosher, Senior lecturer, Brunel University
  • Chris Cooke, Founder and MD, CMU

At 11.00am

  • Naomi Pohl, General Secretary, Musician’s Union
  • Geoff Taylor, CEO, British Phonographic Industry
  • Tom Gray, Chair, Ivors Academy

The Committee questions representatives for music labels and musicians on whether the “reset of streaming” urged in the Committee’s report is underway.

MPs are expected to ask about the future of remuneration for musicians, after the Committee found that artists were poorly compensated for the revenue brought in from music streaming.

The session may also cover the Competition and Markets Authority’s (CMA) investigation into the music industry. The Government referred major music groups to the CMA in response to the Committee’s concerns that these groups were too dominant and were distorting the industry.
