Canadian Council of Music Industry Associations Joins “Focus On Creators” Coalition

The Canadian Council of Music Industry Associations (CCMIA) has formally joined the Focus On Creators coalition to support Canadian musicians, authors, songwriters, poets, music producers, visual artists and other members of the creative industries in urging the Canadian Government to put creators at the centre of our cultural policy surrounding Canadian content in the digital realm.

Focus On Creators is a call to action by Canadian creators. Canadians are consuming more digital content than ever before, and creators have led the shift – they have digitized their work, mastered the Internet, and become their own social media directors. Yet the laws and regulations that allow creators to exploit their works to make a living are now out of date. Without urgent attention from government, thousands of Canadian creators will not be able to tell their uniquely Canadian stories.

The work of Canadian creators is increasingly used to monetize technology without adequately remunerating its creators. Income and profit from digital use of our work flow away from the creative class to a concentrated technology industry. Allowing this trend to continue will result in dramatically fewer Canadians being able to afford to “tell Canadian stories,” much less earn a reasonable living from doing so. The Focus On Creators campaign has prepared a joint letter to Minister of Canadian Heritage Mélanie Joly. Canadian creators are encouraged to add their names to the letter on the initiative’s website, www.focusoncreators.ca, to help send this important message to policymakers in Ottawa.

The Focus On Creators coalition was formed to bring focus to the artists’ perspective in light of some major federal cultural policy activities, including the Canadian Heritage Canadian Content in the Digital World review, and the upcoming Copyright Act review in 2017. These activities present a timely opportunity to re-establish a fair working environment for creators.     

Focus On Creators has widespread support from Canada’s creative industries. The initiative’s supporting partners are:

● Music Canada
● The Canadian Independent Music Association (CIMA)
● The Canadian Council of Music Industry Associations (CCMIA)
● The Canadian Music Publishers Association
● The Canadian Country Music Association
● The Writers’ Union of Canada
● The League of Canadian Poets
● The Playwrights Guild of Canada
● Canadian Artists’ Representation/Le Front des artistes canadiens (CARFAC)

The Canadian Council of Music Industry Associations (CCMIA) is composed of 12 provincial and territorial music industry associations. The members of the CCMIA include Music Newfoundland and Labrador, Music Nova Scotia, Music Prince Edward Island, Music New Brunswick, Music and Film in Motion (Northern Ontario), Manitoba Music, SaskMusic, Alberta Music, Music BC, Music Yukon and Music NWT. The CCMIA represents nearly 8,000 music industry professionals across Canada. Our members include artists, managers, publicists, agents, educators, promoters and other music industry entrepreneurs.

Nova Scotia Music Week 2016 Conference to Focus on Publishing and Rights Management

Keynotes by Stacie Huckeba, David Lowery, and Benji Rogers

The Nova Scotia Music Week 2016 conference will see some of the top music publishers and rights management professionals in Canada attend the event to provide a full day of business training for delegates. Nova Scotia Music Week 2016 takes place in Truro, November 3-6. 

According to Music Nova Scotia executive director Scott Long, “Music publishing can be complex and confusing. In fact, it is one of the least understood aspects of the music industry but one of the most important revenue streams. Given this, it is crucial that the Music Nova Scotia membership have a full understanding of the inner workings of music publishing and rights management.”

American indie star David Lowery from the group Cracker will be on hand to deliver a keynote address on artist rights in the digital age and his world famous lawsuit against Spotify. Along with Lowery, the conference will feature Nashville based music photographer and blogger Stacie Huckeba who will deliver a keynote on the issue of sexism in the music industry.

The conference will also offer export training sessions on Poland and Eastern Europe, business development training on financial management and taxes and will include the third edition of the Women in the Music Business Town Hall. 

NSMW 2016 festival headliners include Classified, Ria Mae, Joel Plaskett, Mo Kenney, Garrett Mason, Christine Campbell and Truro legends Horse. Over 100 musical acts will play in venues across Truro during the event.

For the full NSMW 2016 conference schedule visit nsmw.ca/conferenceschedule.

Government urged to help music industry tackle ticket scalpers

from The Guardian:

Senior figures from Britain’s music industry have called on the government to help them defeat “profiteering” touts at an industry summit on live music ticketing.

Agents, promoters and musicians met to discuss how to ensure tickets go directly to fans rather than being traded purely for profit via secondary websites such as Viagogo and Get Me In!.

Several of them warned that politicians were not doing enough to protect the live music industry, which was worth £904m to the economy in 2015 according to the lobby group UK Music.
