The Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation, part of the Department for Digital Culture Media and Sport, is researching the impacts that algorithmic recommendations on music streaming services are having on the music ecosystem.

As part of that work, they want to hear directly from musicians and music creators.

Please take the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation survey.

Your answers will be crucial in informing the Centre’s future recommendations and interventions in this space.

The survey will close on 9 September at 5:00 pm. 

Part of the push to fix streaming

This research is part of DCMS’ wider work on streaming as a result of the music streaming inquiry, including research, contact and working groups with music industry stakeholders including the MU, and the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) referral.

While the CMA has announced that they will not be conducting a full market investigation into music streaming, which is disappointing, look out for more from the union on this in the next few days.
