Fair Trade Music; Initiative, World's Songwriters Unite
Announcing the "Fair Trade Music" Initiative, World's Songwriters and Composers Unite to Form a Global Advocacy Network
For the first time in music industry history, over 25,000 songwriters and composers from nearly fifty countries throughout Europe, North America, South America, and Africa have joined together to form a new, wholly independent advocacy Network for music creators.
Its immediate goal will be the championing of a set of Fair Trade Music Principles
designed to ensure transparency, fair compensation, and autonomy for music creators in an increasingly complex and non-transparent music business landscape.
