‘We want artists to be fully and fairly paid for their work’: discourses on fairness in processes of copyright reform
Ananay Aguilar is the Regional Coordinator for Latin America at the International Federation of Musicians (FIM) and an Affiliated Researcher at the University of Cambridge. Her interests lie in the production and circulation of recordings considering aesthetics, economics, politics and law. Ananay studied at Universidad de los Andes in Colombia (BA), UNICAMP in Brazil (MA) and Royal Holloway, University of London (PhD).
In this talk Ananay addresses one of four strands of a recent Leverhulme-funded project (and forthcoming book) that focuses on music performers' legal rights. Drawing on interviews with performing musicians and record industry and government representatives, she has examined these rights taking into account 1) their history, 2) how performers make use of the law in everyday practice and through case law, 3) how the rights are managed, and 4) the processes involved in copyright reform. In this seminar Ananay will discuss the fourth strand based on a case study on the Fair Internet for Performers Campaign (FIPC). Launched in May 2015, the EU campaign seeks to turn performers’ exclusive making available rights into rights to equitable remuneration. Drawing on interviews with stakeholders, she will reflect on emerging discourses about fairness and assess the success of the campaign so far.
