Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] Because we should not lose sight of what we can achieve. We can offer creators a way to make a decent living from their art. We can offer consumers a seamless service, the widest possible choice, the ability to lawfully access whatever they want, however they want, wherever they are in Europe. And in between creators and consumers, we can offer an open space for innovation, so we can respond sustainably to digital realities.
Real evidence on how well this all works for creators (incl successful services like Spotify) is what's missing in this debate. Fed up with big businesses pretending to speak for artists while driving them into the ground.
