The Music Producers Guild has joined the list of trade bodies supporting the World Independent Network’s Fair Digital Deals Declaration.

As previously reported, the Declaration was signed by over 700 indie labels worldwide earlier this month, promising fairness and transparency in the digital domain for their artists.

In a statement, MPG executive board member Mick Glossop said: “The music industry has a long history of unfairly exploiting the work of artists without whose creativity the industry would simply not exist. The Fair Digital Deals Declaration is a welcome initiative, which seeks to address those injustices by promoting transparency and accountability”.

The Fair Digital Deals Declaration was one of the topics discussed at this month’s CMU live panel discussion at The Roundhouse in London. Excerpts from that conversation will be featured in the next edition of The CMU Podcast, which will be available shortly.
