European Parliament resolution on music streaming
Reflecting on the concerns raised by authors and composers from across Europe, the European Parliament decided to prepare and own-initiative Report on “Cultural diversity and conditions of authors in the European music streaming market”, which was adopted in Plenary on 17 January 2024 in Strasbourg, after a long and insightful consideration of MEPs on the different aspects of the issue.
The final report shows a thorough understanding of the different problems and proposes legislative solutions on some of them, in particular when it comes to ensuring transparency of the algorithms and recommendation tools of music streaming services and the prominence and discoverability of diverse European repertoires. The Parliament also shows a strong will to address the current imbalance in the revenue allocation that disfavours authors and the unsustainability of the current streaming economy for the future professional career of individual creators.

Following the adoption in plenary with an overwhelming majority, GESAC General Manager Véronique Desbrosses had an exchange with the rapporteur MEP Garcia del Blanco, and expressed her gratitude for this very positive achievement on behalf of the creators community.
