                   A  Fair Stream:

  Recommendations for the Future of

                 Fair   Trade Music

                          ABSTRACT

      Allied Business Intelligence research suggests that, by 2019, the
music  streaming industry will reach $46  billion in premium
subscription revenues. As the music streaming industry grows, the
creators of the musical content appear to be getting left behind. While
there are a number of suggestions for why creators of musical content
are not receiving their share of the pie, one thing is certain: a new
business model is needed. This Note suggests that one possible way to
ensure fairness in the music streaming supply chain is through
applying the fair trade concept to the music streaming model. As such,
this Note explores the tools, standards, and standard-setting bodies of
the conventional fair trade movement and attempts to harmonize them
with the needs of the music streaming industry.
