Yong Kim's insight:

Pros - Japan is making a lot of revenue with their music industry and also, artist get paid much better for their hard work. Also, Japan is showing and influencing other countries to pay more for works that artists make.

 

Cons- The average price for an album in japan is about $30. This is too much for someone to spend in just one CD. Also, they make their fans buy their CD by selling tickets that gives the consumer the opportunity to meet the artists inside the CD albums.

Why Twitter Is Getting Into the Music Discovery Business | Music industry Business | Scoop.it

So why is Twitter getting into the music business? In a word, advertising.

Yong Kim's insight:

Twitter is now trying to be in connection with the music industry too. This is because they want people to stay more time in their web-page and reveal more about themselves. Twitter falls far behind facebook when it's about time spent on the platform. So twitter is trying to make that gap with facebook shorter.

This article gives input on the success of Apple's iTunes Radio and how it has a competitive advantage over Pandora and other streaming services.

 

Pros - Apples negotiated their deals directly with the labels which gave the company some exclusive content.  Other streaming services do not have the access that iTunes radio has.

 

Cons - A con to iTunes radio is that it lacks connectivity to social media.  A listener must post a link manually to their social media site of the playlist he/she listened to.

After reading this article, I knew about the Pros and Cons of iTunes Radio but not to this extent. For example I never knew that negotiate deals with the record label to get a better deal which entails more exclusive music for iTunes Radio.

Pro: exclusive deals with the record label and can get more music than other streaming services.

Con: Other streaming services are earning more money because of advertisements.
