IAFAR is proud to be supporting #PayPerformers who are working to ensure that performers receive fair and equitable remuneration from streaming services via a new right granted by the new Copyright Directive from the EU. Do you want to get involved?
Payperformers have this message for you…
FAIR AND PROPORTIONATE REMUNERATION FROM STREAMING
We know that you are struggling throughout the pandemic and that your livelihoods have been taken away with the cancellation of live events. What’s more, you are not receiving your faire dues from online streaming services even if your tracks are being played thousands of times. The PayPerformers campaign’s objective is to ensure that performers receive appropriate and proportionate remuneration for their content – a key requirement of the 2019 EU Copyright Directive.
We are working across Europe and the UK with Collective Management Organisations in an attempt to make sure YOU are receiving a bigger share from online streaming, not record labels or the platforms. Help us in our endeavour to make performer voices heard and join our campaign. If you would like to become a PayPerformer Ambassador in your country or be on the lookout for our next calls for action, email us at [email protected] !
