Downtown Music Holdings has been surveying 2,200 American adults on their views about streaming and music ownership, with a particular focus on the debate about artists and royalties.

86% of respondents agreed that artists should own and control the rights to their music; 60% believe musicians and artists ‘should determine the fair rate music streaming services should pay them’; and 32% support a user-centric model although 33% don’t know or have no opinion.

“Seven in 10 respondents believe music companies should be responsible for ensuring that the artists they represent are treated and compensated fairly. However, only 29% of those surveyed feel music companies actually do this,” added Downtown.
