The music industry likes to stress that it currently encounters a deep crisis. While comparable industries could claim the same, the music industry has the advantage that music belongs to culture which is traditionally subsidised and protected by the national government. Therefore, the music industry tends to request either financial or legislative
support from the government for solving its problems. National music policies have become common since the nineteen-seventies and each state takes a different approach and attaches different importance to supporting its national music industry (Wallis & Malm 1984: 217). This essay evaluates the issue whether governments are able to take effective measures to protect their music industries. Firstly, I will present the various methods that governments use to support the domestic music industry. Secondly, I will introduce case studies to show the measures being taken in different countries. After illustrating the extensive cultural policy in France, the employment of a radio quota is elucidated with the example of Canada. In addition, I will show how Germany makes stronger efforts towards a popular music policy and how countries try to promote their national music through export offices. Consequently, I will show how the European Union makes its first attempts to promote the music of its member states as a common culture in order to strengthen the EU music industry. Generally, this essay concentrates on analysing the popular music industry but it is interesting to note that government subsidies for classical music and the 'high arts' are on a much higher scale (Internet src: 8).
