Project Details


The overarching goal of Fair MusE is to promote fairness for music creators and stakeholders from an interdisciplinary perspective,
thus leading to a more transparent, competitive and sustainable music ecosystem in Europe. Fair MusE focuses specifically on the
domination of online platforms and their algorithms and will investigate: (i) the legal responses that have been proposed in the EU; (ii)
the changes these platforms have brought to the music industry and music professionals; and (iii) the impact of such algorithms on
music consumption. Fair MusE will provide an interdisciplinary analysis of fairness in the music industry involving music creators and
stakeholders in the research; promote and enhance transparency concerning music industry practices and standardisation in data
collection in the European music ecosystem; and assess the risks created by the reinforced dominance of the largest online platforms
prompted by COVID 19 as well as making policymakers, stakeholders and the general public aware of such risks.
