Episode #92: What Does Net Neutrality Mean For Musicians?

 
The internet is a vital tool for artists, but without the protections that ensure a level playing field, creators’ ability to earn a living comes under threat. On today’s episode, we dive into the murky waters of net neutrality, copyright, and tech giants. We hear from Thirsty Ear Recordings Peter Gordon about why musicians should care about net neutrality. This point is echoed by Evan Greer of Fight for the Future, who goes on to explain the organization’s controversial stance on copyright. Finally, Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier shares his opinion on tech giants like Google and why musicians are so mad at YouTube.
