Steven Page on the Canadian Music Creators Coalition

Friday, May 26, 2006 - 8:00 am

A group of Canadian Musicians have formed the Canadian Music Creators Coalition in order to bring a new voice to the digital music revolution debate. Steven Page of Barenaked Ladies is one of the founding members of the CMCC and I had the privilege of speaking with him last evening.

Note: The Barenaked Ladies have a Podcast which you can subscribe to using a link on their website.

Finally some well organized discussion on this very necessary topic!

A big thanks to both of you. I hope Ottawa will listen to our artists’ concerns and realize Canada’s potential to be “progressive and innovative” as Steven put it so well.

If anyone is going to get Ottawa to think outside of the box, it’s steve page! This is such a grassroots effort with deep roots in the music industry. I am excited to see what this group can do for themselves and their fans.

Fine job mark!

Great Interview and podcast on one
of the serious issues of our times.
I heard selling USB sticks with the
media by the artists themselves mentioned. How does this work?
Is there any update on this ?

Thanks for the interview. I also read an article by Nate Anderson for Ars Technica who spoke to Steven Page about a compulsory license model that would allow consumers access to all the music they want and would ensure that artists get paid.

It will be interesting to see how everything works out in the next few months/years.
