2000 artists call on the Italian Government and Parliament for streaming rights.

There are Paolo Fresu, Luciano Ligabue, Gianna Nannini, Mario Biondi, Frankie hi-nrg mc, Raphael Gualazzi, Fabrizio Bosso, among the over 2.000 artists that signed an open letter calling on the Italian Parliament and Government to recognize an equitable remuneration on streaming music service.

The appeal is promoted by ITSRIGHT and Paolo Fresu, as part of the common support to the European Payperformers campaign.  

Performers are concerned about the Government decisions that do not adequately resolve the situation that sees, on the one hand, the streaming platforms increase their profits and, on the other, performers receive little or no nothing for the uses of their music.  

Singers and musicians are now asking to implement the 2019 EU Copyright Directive and, in particular, its article 18, which guarantees performers appropriate and proportionate remuneration from streaming services.  

 Without an immediate change the future and the work of an entire cultural category is at risk.
