This follows five months of campaigning by The Ivors Academy and Musicians’ Union, and may be the biggest opportunity we will collectively get to make the case for a fairer deal for songwriters, composers, and performers.
Together we can fix streaming and keep music alive.
Have your say the most effective way
Wherever you are in your career, the inquiry wants to hear from you.
If you’re not sure what to say, take a look at our tips on what the inquiry is looking for, making your case as strong as possible, and ideas that we think will fix streaming and keep music alive.

Take a look at our Streaming Inquiry FAQs.
If you still have questions, ask us on Twitter @IvorsAcademy and @WeAreTheMU.
Spread the word
The more songwriters, composers, and performers who share their experiences, the more chance we have of our collective voice being heard.
We’re up against some powerful interest groups who will argue that streaming is working– but we have the community of music and fans on our side.
If you’re not sure what to say, here are some ideas to get you started:
