Apple Music: Please Add Song Credits to your Platform!
With the touch of a button we can stream tracks, explore genres, artists and albums, and even read the lyrics of the songs we listen to within the Apple Music platform...but nowhere can listeners find the names of the songwriters, musicians, engineers and producers who created the music. It's not just about giving credit where credit is due, it’s about giving us the experience we want as music consumers. Apple tags tracks with a very limited amount of metadata in order to identify songs, but more cohesive and complete third-party music credit databases exist...with a simple link, listeners could have user-facing song credits accessible within the Apple Music app. Apple, we CARE about the people who create our music. Please add song credits to your platform!

Bring Peace to the Loudness War
Music streaming services need to properly manage audio loudness. We ask them to implement a loudness level in line with the Audio Engineering Society recommendations. No More Loudness JumpsMusic listeners’ number one complaint is when volume levels jump up and down. In contrast, loudness management can make for a far better listening experience: Quiet songs or albums are turned up and loud songs or albums are turned down. This is called “loudness normalization” — and the benefits are huge. When streaming services start using normalization, listeners will be happier and sound quality will improve across all services. Keep the Artists’ IntentStreaming services, please let artists choose how their music should sound! Some producers choose to master loud as part of their art. But other creators feel forced to master too loud (over-compress), compromising their vision because more dynamic music would sound lower than the “competition.” They mix and master to the level of the loudest streamer, adding unwanted distortion, pumping and clipping. This situation intensifies the Loudness War in music production and discourages creators from producing programs which are dynamic, open-sounding and impactful. Streaming services, please turn normalization on by default and choose the AES recommended loudness level (‘target’). This sensible target protects the sound quality of the original production and maintains loudness from track to track. When artists know and expect that loudness management will be used, they can finally follow their own vision without worrying about competing and we can enjoy the music exactly as they intended. Streamers: Let’s CollaborateWe know streaming services want to provide the best sound and service to their users. As music streaming hits the mainstream, now is the perfect opportunity to end the Loudness War by adopting universal loudness management. So please join the dialogue here at change.org. Let’s work together to make a better sounding audio world! Take Action!The Loudness War is over if you want it. Many people have been concerned for a long time about this issue… Sign this petition, asking streaming services to implement loudness normalization now, following the AES guidelines — and share it with your friends!

Tremendous progress in loudness measurement and management has already been made by groups like the EBU, the ITU and ATSC.

Get Buffy The Vampire Slayer Back On Netflix
I would like to get Netflix to attempt relicense buffy (And other shows lost when they lost that contract) and get it back on Netflix for streaming. Pretty cut and dry if you ask me, so if you're a fan of Buffy join this petition!

Get Netflix to Simulcast Anime Worldwide
We have hear you about your complaints! Now it's about time to take action! Finally! The main problem is that Netflix is holding it's anime they acquired to stream and it seems it not helping the anime industry. Many anime fans don't want to get spoiled through and decided to pirate it because of that. I heard a lot of outcries time to time as it grown increasingly louder as they've gone after "bigger" titles like Little Witch Academia and The Seven Deadly Sins. Simulcasts is the general standard for the hardcore anime market nowadays. The lack of a simulcast harms discussion for their shows, and even worse makes a lot of people more likely to pirate stuff. We need to tell Netflix about on what how to stream anime better. We really do not want future anime series that we have to wait to watch legally because of Netflix. As the new anime titles they acquire have been increase, we need Netflix to finally simulcast titles worldwide. I'm surprised that there isn't one despite a lot of uproars and outcries. So I'm made on. I'm sorry for the lack and poor writing, but feel free to send a message to me on what to said and improve on this message.

Bring back free Premier League streaming service on NBC!
The recently announced Premier League Pass streaming service requiring fans to pay $50 a year to have access to 130 matches is going to kill the growing popularity of soccer in the United States. This service was previously a free bundle to any cable or satellite subscription with NBCSN but now NBC is charging fans for this service. Many new fans will be turned off from soccer all together while others will resort to downloading illegal streams of matches online. Overall soccer viewership in America will decrease due to this new service which was previously at an all time high.
