Make the Internet fair for performers

In the first half of 2015, over 1 trillion songs, movies and TV series have been streamed online - more than double the amount in 2014.
However, whilst Spotify, Netflix and iTunes and other legal, on-demand streaming and download services continue to grow in popularity and value, performers still do not receive a fair share of the income generated by their recorded performances.
In order to remedy this unfair situation, four international organisations representing over half a million performers in Europe (AEPO-ARTIS, EuroFIA, FIM and IAO) have joined forces and launched a campaign for the fair treatment of performers online (the Fair Internet campaign).
Do you believe that performers should be fairly rewarded? If so, you can help us make that happen. Simply sign this petition and share it with your friends and colleagues on social media. Raising awareness is key to setting up a fair legislative framework for performers in Europe.

Excluding performers from the financial benefits that the online market has to offer cannot be the basis for a sustainable cultural and creative sector.
We call on the European Commission, the Parliament and the Council to take action as a matter of priority to ensure performers get a fair share of online revenues, through an unwaivable remuneration right for digital uses of their work, collected from the users who make the performances available on demand and subject to mandatory collective management.
