Fair Trade Music International
Founded in 2014, Fair Trade Music International is an independent, not-for-profit organization backed by more than 500,000 music creators from around the world. We combine a board of renown songwriters and composers with global networking, education and awareness initiatives to promote the emergence of an ethical, sustainable and transparent music ecosystem.
We aim to help people to make ethical choices when producing, distributing, streaming or purchasing music. Our objective is a modern digital music economy that incentivizes creativity, increases access to new music and is equitable for everyone in the music value chain.
The Fair Trade Music movement is focused on a number of issues that are facing the world’s music creators. We are working to raise awareness while providing essential knowledge, research recommendations and technical context. Our hope is that these resources might help songwriters and composers understand, avoid and if necessary, address similar issues.
