Jerel Tatum's curator insight, May 17, 12:07 PM

This topic is about giving music rights to the artist, and how TV, radio, and more networks are using the artists music on their own. The cons of this situation is that spotify is being left in the dust and that they need to work harder to make the artists happy on the payouts. The pros of this is that Neighbouring Rights are giving more income rights to the artists. Over the past 5 years the income has been going up year by year.
