SoundCloud Has a New Revenue Chief Position so It Can Finally Start Making Some $$$

SoundCloud Has a New Revenue Chief Position so It Can Finally Start Making Some $$$ | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
Can SoundCloud compete with the big guns? It’s debatable, as there are a lot of factors at play here. The first aspect of this service will be the price point; music labels believe that charging $10 a month is decent enough. However, that is only the case if all 30 million songs are being offered. On the other side, SoundCloud has way more music, now if it goes in contract with labels then the company will have a competitive advantage over rival services.

Ah! Something new. This has both its pros and cons. Like all things in life. The pros in my opinion would be the discovery of many artists. With so many out there but few with real talent, its good to see soundcloud step it up. I feel like it would be the better service. Versus Pandora or Spotify. Soundcloud will let users not only stream and search for the music they want, but to also let artist upload their work. Whether is a song or a beat, this will make soundcloud very unique. No doubt this will make revenue. Fast too.

SoundCloud to record labels: Don't sue us and we'll cut you in

SoundCloud to record labels: Don't sue us and we'll cut you in | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

SoundCloud, the Berlin-based audio streaming site, is getting worried about copyright violations on its site.

SoundCloud is like YouTube for audio; it allows anybody to upload any kind of audio. This naturally opens the door to people uploading copyrighted audio. Just as YouTube has had to do, SoundCloud now wants to work out agreements with copyright holders over what to do when this happens

 

Pierre Priot's insight:

Smart move from SoundCloud. Let the majors in so they won't sue their own endeavor.

That's sad news for the indie world though.
