IFPI report

Published on Wednesday 22 March 2023

The IFPI published its annual ‘Global Music Report’ yesterday, which has all the customary stats about the global recorded music market, as well as providing some insight on the key concerns and lobbying objectives of the major record companies. With that in mind, I used my report on it as an excuse to write a very brief history of record industry lobbying since the start of the big shift to digital (in something a traditional CMU style). Because, you know, that sounded like fun. Read the stats and history lesson here.
