Letter to Emily White at NPR All Songs Considered.

Letter to Emily White at NPR All Songs Considered. | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

"Recently Emily White, an intern at NPR All Songs Considered and GM of what appears to be her college radio station, wrote a post on the NPR blog in which she acknowledged that while she had 11,000 songs in her music library, she’s only paid for 15 CDs in her life. Our intention is not to embarrass or shame her. We believe young people like Emily White who are fully engaged in the music scene are the artist’s biggest allies. We also believe–for reasons we’ll get into–that she has been been badly misinformed by the Free Culture movement. We only ask the opportunity to present a countervailing viewpoint."

Nick Beasley's curator insight, October 12, 2014 5:52 PM

This is a very reliable source. The article discusses how the artists aren't being fairly compensated when their music is being streamed on music streaming sites. The record labels and the streaming websites are getting the majority of the revenue. I don't feel this is right. Record labels tend to profit more off of artists music than the artists do, and that goes for any avenue for getting music out their. Whether that avenue is a music streaming site, iTunes, or CD sales. Artists just don't make as much off of their music as the label they are under.

Candace Johnson's curator insight, November 4, 2014 10:35 AM

Many artists are rebelling against the idea of music streaming services and people feel that people "owning" music might be obsolete anymore. Music streaming services have changed the game and nature of the recording industry. For example, certain views and plays on Youtube now count towards Billboard rankings. However, these streaming sites have paid for rights and plays often contribute towards royalties that the artists collect upon. Streaming services often feel they are highlighting the underdogs and bringing people out of the darkness and recognizing them.
