Streaming Services Really Are Saving the Music Industry, Global Sales Prove | Hot topics in the industry | Scoop.it
Piracy plummets and revenue rises for the first time in 13 years, but will the artists reap the rewards?
Andres Lugo's insight:

In the 2000's the industry was fraid that the biggining of the digital world was goint to kill the industry. In 2012 streaming services demostrate it that its the opposite. Last year the industry sales rose .3 percent which is the fist growth since a long time. this is due that people are getting the music they want to listen legally and they dont downnload it illegally as much as before. Everytime a sing is played on these services, the owners of the song are getting payed. the only one that really gets hurt is the artist, they dont get paid as much by this.

Within the past decade we have seen the rise of digital music services such as iTunes and Amazon. Physical music sales started to decrease, and digital downloads started to surpass all other o
Andres Lugo's insight:

In the 1920s, George O. Squier started with the idea of transmission of signals trough electrical lines which later on this bacame "Muzak", a tool that streams music to commercial customers without the use of radio. In the past decade digital music services have increased in a huge way. Consumers started to listen to streaming music more because they know they can acces to any song at anytime with out having to pay for it. this made a huge impact in the industry because consumers are not longer buying music like they used to.

 

Pros: it will lower Paracy, streaming will let you explore new artists, its accesable, it helped the industry grow by a 0.3%, you can listen to any song you want

 

Cons: Ther artist wont get paid as much, you wont have the hard copy of the songs to listen to them offline, it lowers the quality of the product, not many songs will be purchased
