Indie Labels Unite for "Fair Digital Deals" Initiative

Posted by - 06:13 PM on 07/15/14
Over 700 indie labels have come together for an initiative promoting fair and transparent accounting to artists and music companies in respect of digital revenues.
Representatives of Domino, Cooking Vinyl, Epitaph, Because Music, Glassnote, Mushroom Group, Nettwerk, Ninja Tune, Secretly Canadian, Saddle Creek, Sub Pop, Tommy Boy, XL Recordings and the Beggars Group, representing 4AD, Matador and Rough Trade, are among the 700-plus signatories of the ‘Fair Digital Deals Declaration’ – a firm commitment from the global independent community to treat artists fairly in relation to the digital exploitation of recorded works with third parties.

Something's wrong. Victory isn't listed anywhere. Probably because they're all about compensating their artists fairly.

Great to see this. Always interesting to see Indie lables innovating ahead of the Majors and investing in the longevity of their artists.
