Billy Bragg, Radiohead, Gang of Four, The Cribs, Klaxons and others have formed the Featured Artists Coalition. The goal of the group is to push for more control of copyrights and a bigger share of revenue for artists rather than the labels.
The group states their manifesto: No one knows what the structure of the music industry will look like in future. But all artists face the same challenges in today's digital world, so we need to speak with one voice to help artists strike a new bargain with record companies, digital distributors and others. Together, the Featured Artists' Coalition will stand up for all artists by engaging with government, music and technology companies, and collection societies, arguing for fair play and, where necessary, exposing unfair practices.
