Hugo V. Monteiro's curator insight, July 1, 2013 7:24 AM

"The real problem is that no matter what rate is set, there are so many hands in the pot—from groups like ASCAP and SoundExchange to record labels to artists to songwriters—that once a payment trickles down to the people who actually create the music, there’s not much money left. “The fundamental building block of the music business is the song,” says Cracker’s Lowery. “We’re in a weird position where the people who create the product, the musicians and the labels, don’t set the price for our own stuff. The government sets the price. Give us more control and let the market sort it out.” Then, with a laugh, he adds: “That’s right. You’re hearing an artist call for more free enterprise.”

Artists such as Atomas for peace, Pink Floyd, and the Eagles have taken their albums off of Spotify. claiming that its bad for new artists.

Tony Miranda's curator insight, October 11, 2013 9:30 PM

I thought this article was interesting.  I do somewhat agree that the fact artists do not get paid enough through Spotify with the amount of streams being played from a musician stand point. But streaming is the way of the future, and once other companies start utilizing and creating better streaming services then the artists can be getting paid justly for their work.
