Debating Cory Doctorow’s internet blanket music licensing plan
Posted on: 9 juin 2020, by : Stuart Dredge

This story begins with an article by author and activist Cory Doctorow on the website of the Electronic Frontier Foundation: ‘A Plan to Pay Artists, Encourage Competition, and Promote Free Speech’.
It proposed extending the kind of blanket licensing that allow clubs, restaurants and radio stations to play music to the internet as a whole, including any digital service that wants to use recorded music.
“Let companies pay a per-user license fee that gives them access to the same catalog that Amazon, Apple, and Google claim, without having to cut deals with every label and musician,” wrote Doctorow.
Music Ally wanted to explore this idea more, for our weekly Music Ally TV Show. So, host Joe Sparrow interviewed Doctorow for a pre-recorded segment in the show – you can watch the full interview here or via the embed below.
