Copyright infringement has long been hurting the artists all over the world in our digital age. However, an ambitious project recently launched by a successful British movie and TV composer may reinvent the way artists and writers can publish their works on the Internet.
Hélène Muddiman, 48, the musician, who writes music for many TV shows, including The Only Way is Essex, has long been campaigning under the banner Free At What Cost? and managed to build up a growing movement all over the world to push for a following solution: a coding device, which would label and protect creative content before it is viewed. In other words, her idea represents a practical solution, which involves deploying a technical protection on a new file to charge the consumers a small amount each time they click.
Last week the artist Imogen Heap also announced her plan for recording artists to use the Bitcoin technology to solve the problem. In the meantime, Muddiman believes she is even closer to an answer, offering a system that would allow musicians to make a small amount of money that would be sent direct to their accounts, when their content is viewed. This may provide a regular income and thus secure a supply of content in the future.
The shared technology developed by Muddiman on a not-for-profit basis is already supported by UK stars, including Billy Bragg, Neil Innes, Adam Ant and the Bond and Sherlock composer David Arnold. If widely adopted, it could change the economics of the Internet.
Billy Bragg, for example, admitted a mix up on his part when he criticized Taylor Swift for removing her music from Spotify. The latter was made in the mistaken belief that it would then be streamed on YouTube’s new Music Key. However, Bragg argues that it is vital to find a solution for all artists and performers.
The main problem today is that many sites are not selling and distributing the product at a reasonable price, but rather selling advertising. Although those sites claim to share their advertising revenue with creators, they share only a small part of it: for example, YouTube only shares 55% with content creators who achieve over 700,000 views per upload in a quarter. In other words, it is in YouTube’s interest to encourage multiple people upload the same content in order to dilute the viewers and pay out less money to creators.

|What a ridiculous invention.|
FACT: the record/music AND filmindustry make more profit since 2013 via online content than CD sales back in the days !.
And still complaining how 'poor' these CREATIVE MIRACLEMUSICCREATORS are.
Like the downfall of wifebeatercheater Jayzee's crappy expensive "Tidal"", this bizznizzmodel will never work, for it has to have a giant library of cooperating musicians and equally viewers/listeners in order to be a viable stream.
Shame, every good invention is eventually strangled and killed-off by the greedy 1 % ers of our planet. Got a million? You want 10: Got ten? etc,etc. Great site btw, keep up the good work !.Greetz from the Netherlands.
|make music cheaper and people will buy it,there is no cd,packaging and transport costs anymore no shop staff to pay for but yet the music industry still want to charge the same as the old days of cd production|

|The Artists should be paying us!! You put a track out there, You want your fans to listen to it, the more of your fans listen to it, or play it, other people hear it, were doing your advertising for you! Pay you more? You have concerts, t-shirts, mugs that sort of thing. Music should be free! I dont live in a huge house with 20 gazillin cars and even more in the bank. If you want to pay then pay what you think is right for the album, I for one wont be paying a little bit everytime I click on something.|
|Real musicians are normally happy that people are listening to their music.||
