MUSIC • TECHNOLOGY • POLICY

Once again, MusicCanada’s Global Forum at Canadian Music Week in Toronto gives a major platform to creators to discuss the human rights of artists and how to deal with the Silicon Valley onslaught.  This year featured a great interview by Kate Taylor of the Globe and Mail with Zoë Keating, Blake Morgan and Scott Timberg.  Watch the full video for the most insightful commentary on our struggle you’ll hear for a long, long time.  And consider this an invitation to sign the #irespectmusic petition and support artist pay for radio play!

Also big thanks to Toronto Mayor John Tory for showing his support for artists in Toronto and beyond!

And an especially warm homecoming show by Canadian born Zoë Keating, achingly cool memories for all who heard her.

  1. Pander-a: If songs are only worth 1%, 2% or 3% of your revenue, then if you don’t use the songs, your revenue should only be 1%, 2% or 3% less than it is now. Pander-a, your revenue would be 0.00000% without the songs. There’s no way – beyond your short-term money grabbing and thievery – around the songs and their creators.
