Digital Music News - I'm a Successful Artist. Yet the Digital Music Industry Has Become My Enemy... | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Jordan encourages fans to enjoy his music for free, yet on the paid side, he has a serious issue that would make any artist feel hopeless. The problem started when an unknown dubstep artist stole one of his most popular tracks, barely 'remixed' it, and then started selling it successfully on iTunes, Spotify, Rhapsody, Google Play, and a number of other major digital music outlets. The stolen version simply adds some bird chirps, yet this version - by the 'artist' ironically called 'Inventor' - shows up first in search results on most major services and even gets ID'd by Shazam (based on his copy).
