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.

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.

Their are 2 really good points in this Article. One says that you SHOULDN'T be paid for them streaming YOUR music. But the other side of that is that you SHOULD get paid for streaming YOUR music. Multiple people have pulled albums because they were not making enough money on these streaming services. "Spotify is now valued at 3$ billion dollars" and none of the artists have ever seen that money.
