Chapter 8: Remunerating authors and performers: Are statutory fair compensation provisions sufficient?
Restricted access

Digitization has created both challenges and new opportunities for content markets and their players. With digitization content providers - at all stages of the supply chain - have had broad, diverse opportunities to simplify the creative processes and to distribute the material cheap, fast and to everywhere with internet access. A key challenge is the potential for piracy, which is significantly more pronounced with digital technology. In this chapter, however, it will be revealed that the legal content market in the digital era is also suffering from an imbalance, and probably to such a degree that it is not sustainable. Authors and performers are continuously getting paid less for providing for a greater digital consumption by the end users. In this chapter the imbalance will be documented by presenting an empirical study of the Norwegian music sector in 2019.
