I came across a petition that might be of interest to some (even all) of us Ebellians. I signed it, because I totally agree! I took the conclusions of the accompanying text, and added them below, so you can get an idea. The full text and the petiton can be found here: www.ipetitions.com/petition/help_jamendo_support_artists_interests/
In conclusion, the following are the three amendments we are proposing. We appreciate your support!
1. The artists should have the choice to entrust the management of works to alternative platforms for promotions and licensing.
2. A percentage of standard license fees must be redistributed to actors other than collective rights societies.
3. The artists must be able to give up their legal right to Fair Remuneration so that collective right societies do not collect fees for them.
