Carter’s current research explores the pandemic’s effect on music and the rise of streamed music, specifically through the Spotify platform. She will look at the role platform politics, copyright legacies, and contracts played in empowering consolidated labels and commercial interests to shape the rules of the streaming economy. During her time at CES, Carter will focus on two areas
specifically: 1) The strategies used by Spanish musicians to obtain higher
streaming payouts for their music compared to their peers in our European
countries. 2) The political efforts in the United Kingdom to
address the market imbalance.
