CMU Insights: The Economics Of Streaming

By | Published on Friday 5 February 2021


The economics of streaming inquiry in Parliament continues, with the indies in the spotlight yesterday, and another session next week involving the digital services and various music industry trade groups.

Don’t forget we have various resources to help you navigate and understand all the debates.

First, there’s the CMU timeline specifically documenting the culture select committee’s inquiry. That includes our full ten-part review of the written submissions made to the committee.

Secondly, to dig deeper, don’t forget the ‘Dissecting The Digital Dollar’ book. Based on five years of research undertaken by CMU Insights with and for the UK’s Music Managers Forum, the ‘Digital Dollar’ book is an in-depth guide to the digital music business, the deals done between the streaming services and the music industry, and all the various issues that have been raised along the way.

And finally, the latest round of CMU’s ‘Streaming Explained’ webinar series is ongoing. You can access a recording of this week’s first session, and tune in live to upcoming webinars on digital licensing and the digital pie debate. Click here for info.
