The way I see this is, You have artist that want some fans actually Buying cd's. So even though the streaming could be a good thing, Most labels pay out more for actual cd's hard copy. Streaming actual have a big lawsuit on alot of music now. Many people can go on youtube and find a song or instrumental and find a internet source to download it for free now they have a free track. artists are not getting paid nor labels. I feel as if we want to get our payout for our music we need to come up with a source to pay artist for only the music that they actual want to put out and no one can download it for free with out there approvel.

Michael Hooper's curator insight, November 13, 8:23 PM

This article is current and quotes many valuable credible members in the music industry from major record labels. It was written to inform people about how streaming is now changing the source of income in the music industry from retail to steaming and paid subscription services.  Like Netflix and Hulu are to blame for the decrease in retail movie sales, pandora and other music streaming sites have did the same to cd sales. Although this is happening and may have changed the  music industry the tech companies that run and support the sites aren't making much of a profit.

Spotify is negotiating to buy SoundCloud and if it buys more companies that it could plug into its platform it could possibly function as a record label for artist helping them with discovery, data, and many other aspects of their career.  This blog brings up a valid point that music labels are very important and vital to an artist and help bring them to their success.  With streaming becoming more popular in the new music industry artist Spotify could become the future label for new and upcoming artists.

Kaiden Sweetnam's curator insight, December 7, 11:03 PM

Spotify is one of the main music streaming apps that everyone is aware of, other companies try to compete with them to gain more followers but cant catch up to them. Spotify might be the next big thing for streaming music.

Michael Hooper's curator insight, November 13, 8:28 PM

This article explains how streaming platforms are now the new gatekeepers of the music industry intertwining music and technology. They have taken over aspects that labels use to handle such as discovery, distribution and creation of music. I love streaming music from Pandora and YouTube because it gives me access to anything I want to hear and whenever I want it. This gives the consumer more power when It comes to what songs get played on the radio and which songs are on the charts making it harder for labels to control the music scene.
