100% of survey complete.

Are you a studio? A producer? A musician? A singer? A record label? Or even a member of the public? I want your opinion. Do you think studios and/or producers should work for nothing? If so, in what circumstances? Here's your chance to voice your opinions.

There's a lot of bad vibes created out of expectation. Whether you are for it or against it, it's time this was addressed - hopefully with some positive results!

Thank you for participating. I'll be posting some results and stats in the near future. Please add your name and an email address in the final question comment box to receive updates and keep in touch. Cheers.
