I enjoyed this post, it was full of good information as of how Instagram can be used as a good marketing source. Artist are able to make post that connect them to their fans on a new level, actually allowing fans to see some of their personal life time to time. The source of the information is just a major informational source which was pretty reliable it was more just to explain ways instagram can be beneficial to Artist.

In my opinion music wouldn't be popping like it is without social media.  Social media has definitely changed the music game for sure. 

Ja'Ron LaRue's curator insight, October 14, 9:04 PM

The secret to making moves with your music is grinding, loyal fans, and social media.

Why Taylor Swift Trademarks Her Lyrics and Why Other Acts May Follow Suit

Why Taylor Swift Trademarks Her Lyrics and Why Other Acts May Follow Suit | Music Industry | Scoop.it
Taylor Swift's team has been regularly filing trademark applications for lyrics and other slogans under her holding company, TAS Rights Management LLC, striking down infringers in the process. But does it really work, and is this approach for everyone?

Rasheed Mccord's curator insight, October 11, 7:41 PM

In my opinion I think Taylor Swift should continue to try to trademark her lyrics. She gets benefits when it works out in her favor so why not! She’s able to sell products and make her fans happy with things their favorite artist said on items they can purchase. Although everything’s can’t be trademarked, the things that can should. My source of information is reliable as well as a major informational source in the music industry. 

Jasmine Tabb's curator insight, October 13, 11:47 PM

First, I feel like this is an amazing idea. Having trademarks on one's music could prevent theft of content without proper pay to the rightful owner. This source is extremely credible, Billboard.com has been updating us with the latest entertainment industry news for years.

Joshua Ming's curator insight, September 16, 2:35 PM

Streaming music is becoming a big thing today and social media like Facebook wants to be first in profiting from it. Bloomberg.com is a credible source for information. Its reliable because it talks specifically about why Facebook wants to own music rights from recording labels. This is key information for anyone who wants to start a record label and are worried about how their going to sell their music.

Christopher Jenkins's curator insight, September 17, 6:47 PM

Simply Outrageous. Facebook already has billions of dollars, First they copy Snapchat, Then they made it to where you can send money to each other like Venmo or Cashapp, and now they want to become Soundcloud or Itunes all in one? I know its business, but that is just simply greedy. I believe one day Facebook will take it too far and will completely Pummel to the ground. They are already stalking people, hacking in to their messages invading peoples privacy. 

 

 

Facebook Inc. is offering major record labels and music publishers hundreds of millions of dollars so the users of its social network can legally include songs in videos they upload, according to people familiar with the matter.

 

The posting and viewing of video on Facebook has exploded in recent years, and many of the videos feature music to which Facebook doesn’t have the rights. Under current law, rights holders must ask Facebook to take down videos with infringing material.
