Berklee Report Examines Fair Compensation in the Modern Music Industry

On July 14, Berklee Institute for Creative Entrepreneurship released a study focused on how to promote fairness and transparency in the music industry. The report, titled Fair Music: Transparency and Money Flows in the Music Industry, was developed by Berklee College of Music faculty and students in collaboration with other music industry organizations, companies, artists, and experts. Among the ideas discussed in the document is a “Creator’s Bill of Rights” comprised of standards for ethical treatment of musicians, artists, and creators, based on the principal that all musicians deserve fair compensation for their art and every creator deserves to have insight into the entire payment system.
