"Yes, Pandora paid an estimated $275 and $325 million to labels and artists, but the labels argue Pandora chokes off demand for other services that are more profitable for them."

Hack Your Craft's insight:

Bottomline, Pandora pays less to the record industry's than their darling Spotify. While Pandora is trying to change the law (a bill that went no where) so they can pay less, Spotify pays more by dealing directly with labels as oppose to skirting around them with regulations in US law for web radio. Meanwhile here comes Apple with IRadio which will enter the streaming goldrush having already established a relationship with the labels to with whom the labels see as an industry leader thought Apple is asking to pay the least to labels. But according to the above article diversification and higher royalty rates (paid to labels, not artists) may be what the labels want and let the streaming services duke it out in the end.
