This article give's us another example of what Pandora doing in regards to royalties towards Songwriters.

 

Pro's: It give's the songwriter the ability to present there work to the public in vast numbers.

Cons: As explained in the article David Lowery had his song played over a million time's but was given a very small amount of money for his work, and Pandora is trying to lower there payments as of today.

Pandora lobbying for royalties rate cuts ; could David Lowery's royalties be any lower?

Winston Mills's curator insight, July 15, 2013 8:44 PM

David Lowery made a bold move by posting his bank statement, which covered all of his royalties in the fourth quarter of 2012.  He clearly felt cheated by Pandora and other media outlets.  He claims to have only made $16.89 in royalties after having his material played over one million times.  In my opinion, artists and musicians are being greatly cheated by media services, and the royalties per play should go up to a more respectable price.  I know that I would be annoyed if my millions of streams only resulted in a couple of hundred bucks.
