Kyle Walker's curator insight, July 20, 2014 3:48 PM

For the founders of Pandora this is a great milestone achievement. As for the artists of the industry being streamed i feel is a great downfall. This article was short but says it all. Pandora went from 100 million subscribers to 200 million in two years! 200 million people are not paying the artist they love but in fact paying a corporation.

Jonathan Caceres's curator insight, October 10, 2015 7:13 PM

200 million listeners is a LOT; it seems like more people are interested in streaming music daily than actually buying the album. I wonder if there would be so many listeners if it cost $20-50 a month.

Justin Walker's curator insight, October 9, 2014 4:24 PM

Pandora royalty plan is  not right and should be  reconsidered and evaluated differently.  With  all the music publishing and internet streaming  pandora the only streaming service who gives there  song writer's and publisher's  8 cents for every dollar that the artists gets paid.  They say the only reason the songwriter hasn't gotten  a  better pay is because of leverage.  I believe that pandora should just have fair and equal royalties for all parties across the board. 

Jaron Lewis's curator insight, November 9, 2014 2:17 PM

extreme controversy over pandora trying to lower royalty rights. I feel it is important because it talks about the artists and how they feel it is unfair that they make so little off of streaming sites. Article is reliable as it comes from billboard.com

Why Does the Music Industry Seem to Hate Fairness? - SlashGear | Music business | Scoop.it

Is it just me or does the music industry really, really hate fairness? For years now, we’ve been hearing about labels trying to limit what we can access on digital stores and musicians holding out on offering their tracks because of the so-called “unfairness” across the Web.
