The new iTunes radio will be out soon to compete with Pandora and other online services. Including some amazing features, and being back up by a giant company as Apple, it's most likely that it will achieve more success than it's competitors.

This article talks about how in 2012, after 13 years, the music industry increased their revenue. This shows how the digital is saving the music industry, and this is the main reason why record labels should finance and pay a fair percentage of money to the streaming companies.

Part of the pros of the research, this article talks about the increase in earnings towards the industry and how digital technology has become the pioneer defender.
Keith Napier's curator insight, March 16, 2014 1:59 PM

I added this article because of the emphasis that is placed on the increase in selling digital music versus tracks.  The article speaks about the two streaming services Rdio and spotify that there was a significant increase in the purchase of music along with iTunes in 2012.   Streaming Music has definitely decreased music piracy a great deal.  As mentioned in the article the only problem thus far with streaming music is the artist receives very little from the sales and each time the song is played.  I believe they get anywhere from 3 to 7 cents for each song.  Considering the direction we are going in and like most things that are new to the industry. Once changes are made and things are cleaned up and revisited on how streaming music can be more positive and profitable, I believe the artist / music industry will eventually be more receptive to the service of streaming music.

Jonathan Hines Dumitru's curator insight, January 19, 2014 8:13 PM

Record labels claim that media streaming services will save the industry. Spotify and Pandora have provided customers with easy to access music without having occupy their hard drive . Artists that have just started can be discovered through this, and get paid each listener at a time. Record lables, however, don't pay an acceptable percentage to Spotify, Pandora, and other streaming services.

This article discusses the reason why artists don't make money online. If we look at the statistics, the number of sells an artist must achieve monthly it's pretty high just to earn a really low salary of $1000 a month.

I believe this should be regulated some how, being a musician it's a job and it should be well paid.

Is piracy the real reason why music industries are making less money than fifteen years ago?

Users will find other ways to listen to the music they love, either on YouTube or by stealing it. And while the back catalogs of thousands of beloved musicians are still under the control of the old guard, newcomers will continue to go the independent route if it means they get to keep more of their royalties.
