The findings of the CISAC Global Collections Report 2020 clearly illustrate the severe impact the pandemic has had on our industry. Though it is encouraging to see that global collections continued to rise in 2019, the devastating effect of coronavirus on the live sector and beyond mean that we must now adapt and innovate on behalf of music creators globally, to protect the value of their rights. Collectively we must embrace the challenges and opportunities of these times.
