Whilst music streaming businesses develop at a quick pace, performers are still not rewarded fairly – if at all – when their performances are exploited online.
Together with three other international organisations (AEPO-ARTIS, FIA and IAO), FIM is involved in the Fair Internet campaign, which is asking for the introduction in EU law of a fair and equitable remuneration to be paid to performers every time their performances are used online.
This campaign needs your support. Here is what you are requested to do
– Sign the campaign petition and share it on social networks.
– Follow the campaign Twitter timeline: @FairInternet4P, retweet its tweets and use hashtag #FairInternet4Performers in your own tweets.
– Retrieve information and documents from the Fair Internet website and publish them on your website.
– Ask all your members to do the same + publish video messages along the following lines:
Send your video message in 3 steps
1. Download and print the Fair Internet logo (in colors)
2. Take your smartphone in one hand and the printed logo in the other hand, and do a video-selfie with a message like this: “My name is [your name], I am a [musician][actor][dancer][…] and I support the Fair Internet campaign”
