This goes to show that artist who are listened to via online, or apps, etc., are not making a dollar or even cents for when people are streaming.

Streaming music apps are a dime in a dozen. Thus, it is not surprising that while music apps are common on smart phone devices, 72% do not use any paid music streaming apps. Only heavy music listeners would pay for such an option.

Manuel A. Font Hernandez's insight:

Spotify is updating its services so it can keep up and be ahead of the music streaming competitors. In this case to the new music streaming application "Beats Music". Spotify is making the application free for users. Unlimited songs and unlimited time use. Even though their making it free it will be difficult to stay at the top because "Beats Music" has support of major companies like AT&T and the NFL. But the real question is: Both Spotify and Beats Music essentially do the same thing, Whats the difference?

I think competition is good for the industry something like spotify stepping thier game up to compete is good for the consumer and thier publuc relations. Pro's unlimited music streaming. Con's now we have more choices for a music medium, I personally think that is a nuisense I like one universal spot to go for everyone to share music. We will just have to wait and see where this all goes and which site benefits more from these changes. Venturebeat.com is a reliable sources in its information and I trust it.

Manuel A. Font Hernandez's insight:

One of the biggest impact on the music industry is who the music is being listen. With all the new technology is more easy nowadays to not just listen but buy music. The biggest disadvantages of this new technologies is the impact that is having in the artist wallets. In order for artist to receive payments(profits) they have to downloaded it millions of times. As in the old ways artist made profits faster and more easier. 

 

Pros: The pros of music streaming for both consumers and artist are that: Consumers: - Access to free music.

                                - Unlimited songs.

                                - Chance to discover new music.

         Musicians: - Exposure to new adventures(new ways to make money.)

                              - Sell albums.

                              - Royalties per stream.

 

Cons: The cons are for the artist only. The cons are that with the evolution of streaming music, less people are buying albums and the artist made a more easier profit this way. For artist to make a profit in the streaming music application they need to sell or download millions before receiving royalties.

 

All of the pros and cons were taken from the research article.

Very interesting to read about the impact of Streaming Services on creative persona. (It just seems to get harder to earn an honest dollar from creating good music. We need to financially value our musicians!)
