Ricardo Guerra's insight:

The article speaks about how whether it's streaming ,or whatever other type of distribution method of music is being used, it is still a product that is being sold. Selling music increases your chances of selling more concert tickets and it is all a business.

News Flash: Your Music Is Not Your Product - hypebot

News Flash: Your Music Is Not Your Product - hypebot | Music a service, not a product? | Scoop.it
This post is by singer / songwriter Jeff Macdougall (@jeffmacdougall). I'm tired. I'm tired of having the same conversation over and over again. The conversation about how we should go about dealing with "thieves" and "pirates" "stealing" our "product" like so many shoplifters. I'm just gonna say it. It's absurd.

Ricardo Guerra's insight:

This article explains how music was never a product, but instead was made into a product by laws and a the music business itself. By not allowing us to listen to the music unless it's purchased or purchased through streaming it is made into a product. The only reason people pay for music is because they want to listen to the music they want whenever they want. Our mind set is different than what it should be.

The author continues on explaining how it never was a product and only was thought to be a product be the many fans of the artist.
