BPI statement in response to CMS Select Committee report on creator remuneration

Dr Jo Twist OBE, BPI CEO said:

"The Committee is right to highlight concerns around generative AI, in particular the alarming rise in the use of copyrighted work without permission or transparency, which is unquestionably the most significant issue facing the creative industries today. That said, the report fails to recognise that, with the support of their labels, more UK artists are succeeding in the streaming economy than ever before and that the real challenge facing all of us is how we can enable continued growth so even more creators stand to benefit.  In an increasingly competitive global industry, their approach risks limiting investment and harming the UK talent of the future, when what we need is a supportive regulatory environment in which British recorded music can thrive.

"We've engaged fully with the Streaming Inquiry and the ensuing working groups from the start, and we will now actively contribute to the Creator Remuneration Working Group also."
