Sammanfattning: Never have so many listened to so much music. The transition to digital uses has made theart form more accessible to everyone. But the transition has also entailed that musiciansreceive ever lower remuneration for the exploitation of their work in relation to other partieson the market. To harmonize copyright law in the digital age, and to strengthen the positionof authors and performers, the Digital Single Market Directive was adopted by the EU in2019.The present work deals with the right to remuneration in accordance with Articles 18and 20 of the Digital Single Market Directive, more particularly in situations when relatedrights to music performances are transferred. The aim is to examine and argue for how thearticles should be interpreted to satisfactorily achieve the purpose underlying the directive.It is stated that the purpose behind the directive is to ensure that authors and performersreceive necessary compensation for their work and achievements, i.e., a compensation largeenough to safeguard the survival of creative and artistic work in all of Europe over a longperiod of time.Further, the conclusion is drawn that Swedish law, in its current form, doesnot live up to the requirements set by Article 20 in the Directive. In addition, it is argued thatArticle 18, which in some respects might be considered optional, rather should be appreciated as a necessary means to reach the purposes underlying the Directive and therefore beimplemented as non-optional. The conclusion is that Article 18 is needed both as a methodof adjusting non equitable contractual terms and as a principle of unwaivable right to remuneration
