Spotify royalties: 'Problem lies with labels - not streaming services', says Billy Bragg

Spotify royalties: 'Problem lies with labels - not streaming services', says Billy Bragg | Streaming Royalties | Scoop.it

"Artists should get better royalty rates"

James Stubblefield's insight:

This article targets the labels as being the problem with streaming and not the streaming sites. Especially with older contracts, the labels are taking the same amount the would if they were selling hard products.

This article particularly interests me because of the writers take on it. This somewhat made me look at things through a different light. I agree with this to a degree, because it's true, we can't argue with who is doing the paying, instead we should try to come to new terms. It was also enlightening to find out that those who are receiving the least amount of revenue are those who still have contracts from before this digital streaming age.

James Stubblefield's insight:

This article is describing the recent win against Pandora for lower royalties. Pandora was trying to lower the amount of royalties it pays for each stream but due to a lot of public pressure they have backed down.

Spotify reveals music streaming royalties

Spotify reveals music streaming royalties | Streaming Royalties | Scoop.it
Spotify, the world's most popular music streaming website, has revealed how much an artist makes from each song.
James Stubblefield's insight:

This article explains the Spotify pay structure of royalties. Being a free service, Spotify cant possible pay a large sum of money per stream. Their initial pay scale was much lower, but now with more paid users they can pay out more.

The Pros And Cons: I think services like Spotify are good for both consumers and artists. It attracts people by being free and gets the artist’s music to many different people. The cons would be the small amount of royalties paid to the labels and artists.

I love Spotify.  This article shows how much artists were getting paid for their songs being played on Spotify.  In between .006 and .0084 per stream.  It also shares that if an artists song gets streamed 1,000,000 times the artist would make roughly $1500.00.

In this article I learned how Spotify created in 2006 is the worlds most popular music streaming website and pays 

an average per-stream payout of $US0.006 and $US0.0084 $0.007 and $0.0092 and is in competition with Pandora another  music streaming website.

This was yet another enlightening article to read up on. Even though it's a fairly simple and short one, it lets us see that it's more the right holders' place to be distributing the money more than it is Spotify's. So maybe the problem doesn't stand in the streaming services, so much as the distribution of money on the right's holders' ends.

I really liked this article. It gives you a really good insight on how things are actually being played out in the music world. Instead of a earning a certain amount of money that day for that purchase of the album, you are receiving royalties for your music for the rest of your licenses' agreement term. This puts things in a new light. Maybe Spotify IS doing the right thing?
