Streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, YouTube and Amazon Music are under the spotlight as the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee launches an investigation into whether artists are fairly paid for their streaming music.

Kickstarted by the #BrokenRecord campaign, set up by musician Tom Gray, the streaming market and revenue generated to record labels is growing rapidly, however artists and musicians are seeing very little income from their music.

The DCMS inquiry begins in November, and is seeking evidence from industry experts, artists and record labels. Click on the link below for further details and to submit evidence.
