UK Music is today launching our annual music industry survey including, importantly, of music creators. The survey is a key part of our influential annual report to assess the state of the UK music industry.
The proposals to reform copyright were passed by the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Tuesday March 26 without amendment by 348 votes to 274. We would like to thank all the Euro MPs who backed this important change in the face of a barrage of misinformation. A huge thank-you also to all our UK Music members as well as all the other creators and campaigners who fought so hard to secure this vital change. It is a huge step forward for creators, the UK music industry and the millions who love the music we produce.
