All these music streaming companies rely on major record labels to supply them with the music that they stream. However, the record labels only make deals that make them the most profits.

Brandon Jones's comment, April 16, 2013 8:09 PM
I think that music streaming services are a great way to give exposure to both the artist and the recording companies they use. The recording companies have to be careful to not exploit the power they have to charge what they want over the streaming companies.

Can streaming save music sales? | Gill's Streaming Extravaganza | Scoop.it
Streaming services have reversed the fortunes of the music industry in Sweden and now generate more income than downloads or CDs. But can the model be replicated worldwide? (#RealMediaTech news Can streaming save music sales?

My topic deals with music streaming and music steaming services. How has music streaming changed the industry, and can streaming be a viable source of income for artists and companies? How about for the consumers; how has music streaming changed the way we consume music? Some of the pros of music streaming are that you are able to stream anywhere, unlimited storage, lower manufacturing costs and as more people start to adopt new technologies the profits will rise. However some of the cons are that now consumers don't own their music - they have access to it. Online music is also saturating the market, smaller bands and niche genres may have trouble surviving.
