Music-streaming services really don’t exploit performers. Songwriters, though—that’s another story.

Claudio Matta's insight:

This article shows very good examples of evidence about how Spotify and Pandora pay peanuts to very recognized and successful artists like David Lowery, singer-guitarist of Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven, Thom Yorke of Radiohead and producer Nigel Godrich. 

I disagree in the "streaming music is not the digital equivalent of radio" point because for me it actually is the equivalent of radio and I think that artists should definitely get paid what they deserve for each stream, which is a lot more than they're getting right now. Therefore, I do think it is a problem that artists are getting paid peanuts from streaming services.

Claudio Matta's insight:

In this article, Nick Mason, the drummer of Pink Floyd talks about how music streaming is the future of the music business. I completely agree with him because streaming services can truly be very beneficial for artists too to get many more people to listen to their music, and most importantly, like he says, many more new people to hear them for the first time. Physical CD's sales are highly decreasing and even digital CD's sales too, making streaming services the future of the music.
