Review of the International Music Managers' Forum Aspirational Code of Conduct
Author: Dr Guy Morrow | Publication date: 24-Feb-2010
The international music industry has decentralised and this has shifted commercial control from monopoly companies to smaller artist-manager teams. This project addresses the issue that these artist manager teams are not regulated by a code of conduct. The International Music Managers’ Forum (IMMF) is a voluntary body seeking to create new standards in relation to artist management practices and to the enforcement of international copyright law. Their aim is constrained by lack of empirical research. This project is significant because it provides the first in-depth analysis of artist management practices in the current phase of decentralisation.
The IMMF have a code to which they aspire. The plan for this project is to use this aspirational code as a starting point for the development of a more enforceable code of conduct. Numerous artist managers have and will be interviewed.
