Moderator: Wallace Collins

While we rarely hear most artists singing the praises of streaming services, conditions are slowly improving. Fan-Powered Royalties, first introduced by Soundcloud, were adopted by Warner Music this summer, plus Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music Unlimited are obliged to pay sunstantially more to music publishers and songwriters in the US. Our experts will be examining ways in which streaming services should be getting better in the short term, what else can be done to help artists who need all the assistance they can get post-COVID, and what the streaming landscape could and should look like in the not-so-distant future.
