ADISQ Executive Team Petitions For Digital Payment Equity

By External Source

In a joint letter published Tuesday, the current president of ADISQ and 13 of its predecessors have appealed to the various levels of government so that "new intermediaries" in the music world, such as online broadcasting platforms, are better supervised and that they do not squeeze the resources of Quebec artists and producers.


The fourteen presidents are calling for revisions of three laws - copyright, broadcasting and telecommunications.

At the heart of these reforms, "there is the whole issue of royalties, sums paid to creators and content producers by the platforms,” current ADISQ president and Audiogram label GM Philippe Archambault stated in an interview published in Le Devoir before the executive team issued a joint statement. He mentioned possible quotas for online streaming platforms such as Spotify, and kicking in financing to create new music. "You have to know how they can participate in the development of this industry, by giving back a little money in the creation," Archambault stated.
