Musicians' Union stands up for artists
The industry is getting its second big pro-legal campaign in as many months, with the Musicians’ Union launching an initiative designed to give more control to musicians over how their music is bought and sold.
Music Supported Here, already backed by a host of artists and bands including Kasabian, Florence + The Machine and Robbie Williams, is a campaign and platform to help performers gain – or regain – control of their music and rights and stop them from being “ripped-off”.
The campaign, also supported by the MMF and the Featured Artists Coalition, comes complete with a logo, website, Facebook page and Twitter feed to help musicians publicise and debate the issue of illegal P2P versus legal services, raise their profiles and direct customers to their own online stores and websites.
For fans it is hoped Music Supported Here will become a high-profile badge that they will adopt to show that they do not rip off musicians.
