Google-owned YouTube’s new streaming service has rates so low it will put many indie labels and hardworking artists out of business. According to the CEO of Merlin (rights licensing organization), “the service that pays the least is the service that’s the most well funded and run by the biggest company in the world: their figures are by far the worst, whether you measure them on a per-stream basis or a per-user basis.”
Support Artists’ Rights by demanding that Google and others:
1.Stop using the copyright reform process to attack artists rights.
2.Cease brokering ads to the corporate black market.
3.Support sustainable pay models for the cultural creators on whom its profits depend.
