SCGC shares member survey results in new advocacy brochure

Our colleagues at the Screen Composers Guild of Canada (SCGC) recently conducted a survey of its membership to understand the real issues being faced by the Canadian screen composing community. More than 100 members took the time to complete this survey and add comments to illustrate the current economic challenges they face.

The results were presented in a downloadable brochure with four themes emerging that will be familiar to many music creators around the world:

  • Composers’ intellectual property is often unfairly taken
  • Without protection, they feel forced to accept buyouts
  • They regularly work for free or have to split their writers’ share
  • They are not hopeful for the future of their profession
