I don't really get SpitDigital. Is it like a Tunecore but more selective?

Even Metallica Can’t Make A Profit From Royalties Anymore

Even Metallica Can’t Make A Profit From Royalties Anymore | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Thanks to their battle with Napster, Metallica have often been stereotyped as “greedy rockstars” who are “wealthy beyond belief.” So it might be hard to think that Metallica would do anything that wouldn’t see a return in profit. However, in an interview withRolling Stone (in which Metallica appear on the subscriber’s special issue cover), guitarist Kirk Hammett explains that most of their big endeavors like the Orion Music & More Festival actually never make money. In fact, apparently Metallica don’t make much profit from anything but touring.

My god, the intellectual arrogance of the Napster generation of tweens now grown. The question has always been for me, free music to do what exactly? Sit on your desktop and rot?. The narcissism around p2p sharing is absurd. The thing is I'm not mad at the idea of free music, but it is still presently an undertheorized in practice. Freedom doesn't mean it should be culturally cheapened. How do you combat the greedy excesses of the industry with the excesses of an individual. Anyway, my 2cents.
