The MMF are launching a survey which aims to get the ‘lay of the land’ as to how record companies, music publishers and CMO’s are dealing with and communicating to you about digital royalties, and to find out what issues concern artist managers the most.
The survey will form part of a larger document that tracks the changes and implementation of copyright law in five countries (USA, Canada, UK, France and Germany) and the resultant tangled web of rights and income streams.
It will be published with all the resultant issues highlighted in early July to provide some light summer reading. The subsequent aim is to recommend policy changes to the European Commission.
YOUR ANSWERS WILL REMAIN CONFIDENTIAL. The initial questions about you and your artists are for internal use only, and will only be seen by the MMF and the company undertaking this research on our behalf, CMU Insights. They are there to verify each respondent and to provide context for the core questions below. If you have any questions about this, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07540389306.
The survey will take no longer than ten minutes to fill out.
You do not need to answer every question, though the more you can answer the more helpful your contribution will be.
The deadline for filling out the survey is 19 June, with the results due to be published in early July.
