Bailey Kane's curator insight, April 20, 2016 4:04 PM

The music industry has had its troubles with downloading since 2000. Once music wass ni kinger being sold in CDs, but rather downloaded, it started a wave of issues regarding people pirating which doesnt give  the industry the credit it deserves. There are ways like this article says, to improve the music industry, and it all starts by creating aa structure, and the firm want for music to be purchased. Start finding a way to secure the music industry so its not getting the short end of the stick.

Peer production and changing norms in music practice: An ethnomusicological perspective » Journal of Peer Production

Peer production and changing norms in music practice: An ethnomusicological perspective » Journal of Peer Production | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The rise of peer production and the notion of the produser (Bruns 2009) have contributed to changes in a number of expectations and social norms surrounding the creation, sharing, and use of music. These include an expectation that recorded music will be cheap, if not free; a familiarity with media creation and manipulation as regular activities; and acceptance of widespread copying and sharing. As a result there have been significant challenges to traditional ideas of authorship, ownership, artistic control, creative roles, and income from music. Media discussion and scholarship on peer production comes mainly from the Global North and is usually urban centred, with a focus on particular kinds of music as somehow ‘naturally’ central. Associated technology and social practices have driven these changes; from the Internet, personal computers to smartphones. Although no doubt unintended, this has the consequence of placing the effects of such phenomena on the Global South as peripheral, despite the fact that much of the technology is created in Asia, and distributed globally in places where Internet access is growing rapidly.

Dustyn Knapp's curator insight, October 15, 2016 4:02 PM

I found this article also interesting because as a true artist and appreciator of original material, I get sort of disgusted with the fact that there are so many individuals copying each others sound and style. There is a lot of music that sounds much of the same as other artists music. It goes back to the point of boring and emotionless music being released for publicity and the material side of music.

"One [interesting] feature worth mentioning are the Tokens: limited and tradeable tokens that artists can use to give fans a VIP pass into their world, offering anything from discounts on merchandise to concert tickets and backstage passes, and even advertiser give-aways. Tokens are a tool that helps the undiscovered artist gain exposure while helping the already discovered artist engage with his or her fan base."

Keeping the rights to your music and licensing are even more important now a days. The amount of old music used to sell things and present other forms of media are at an all time high I feel.

Christopher Vaughn's curator insight, September 13, 2016 12:59 PM

In the ever changing world of music this is a ground breaking change to how royalties, fees, and charges can be handled. I think that this is big news because of how much i have seen as far as artists suing labels over royalties and  vice versa. The bitcoin has just started to stand out as a profitable avenue to generate funds so with music, making sure there are no licensing problems are key, and making sure everyone involved with the project gets paid their dues is very important.

The Data Journalism That Wasn't | Future of Music Coalition

The Data Journalism That Wasn't | Future of Music Coalition | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Earlier this month, the New York Times Magazine reached out to Future of Music Coalition with regard to a forthcoming feature. We like to help out with this sort of thing, because we know that music business structures and practices can be quite complicated, and think it’s important that journalists get the facts and context as correct as possible, whatever narrative they’re advancing. Last week, fact-checkers from the magazine followed up with FMC staff. There was a good deal of back and forth as we were provided short paragraphs, and later, individual sentences, from the article and asked to verify whether they were “true.” (Unfortunately, we weren’t provided with much context.)
