Time is running out to save music online
the UK music industry has united to call on EU Members of Parliament to secure music's future.

Members of the European Parliament backed the Copyright Directive in an important vote in Autumn 2018. This change would boost the tiny amounts that some tech firms like YouTube pay for music played online.

A final version of the Directive will be voted on by MEPs in a plenary session of the European Parliament starting on March 25.

The creative industry is a vibrant ecosystem that supports many creators.
Music creators are like butterflies in this rainforest – beautiful and delicate.
Yet some of the global tech giants are laying waste to our creative world, threatening music’s vibrancy and diversity by not fairly compensating creators for the use of their work.
Creators need protection or the world of music will suffer.
The butterfly is a symbol of the fragility of the ecosystem and that’s why we have adopted it as our campaign logo.


Have you heard about proposed copyright changes and how they might affect the internet and the music industry in the years to come? Some of the stories are just plain misinformation.
