image.png An EU court ruling from September 2020 has been causing ripples throughout the European recording music sector. Known as the “Raap” case, it is said that as a result of this ruling European music performers and producers could stand to lose as much as 125 million euros a year in revenues transferred to the USA alone. How could that be and what is being done to address this situation? On this panel you will hear from some of the music organisations and companies who are likely to feel the brunt of the impact if nothing is done to change things. The panel will also discuss why one of the world’s largest music economies does not have the basic rights in place to protect artists and labels.
