MPA Chair Roberto Neri Gives Evidence at DCMS Select Committee Streaming Inquiry


On Wednesday 10th February, MPA Chair Roberto Neri spoke at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Select Committee Streaming Inquiry alongside Geoff Taylor, Chief Executive of the BPI.

He stated that “songwriters are the heart and soul of the entire music industry” and described how publishers are “fighting to push the rate [of payment to songwriters] up at every single negotiation.”
He added that “i
t wouldn’t make sense for us to have any form of bar or ceiling: we want to push the rates on behalf of songwriters as far as we can get them.”
