The Lie That Fuels The Music Industry's Paranoia
Forbes
We've heard it for a decade now. “We're losing more than half our music sales thanks to digital piracy,” proclaims the music industrial complex.
Todd Rinehart's insight:

I scooped this one because it shows how the music indusrty has freaked out over the supposed figures lost to priating music. The figures are not what they expected but never the less, the industry is still scared that they will loose money.

Todd Rinehart's insight:

Thought I would share this one because no matter what. If you pirate music and then sell it for profit you will get busted. Any way you look at it pirating is wrong. You wouldnt want someone stealing your work and profiting from it would you?

FM, Rdio and Pandora have been created to compete with music pirating.
Todd Rinehart's insight:

I like this one because it shows the pro's and con's. 

Pro - With sites like spotify people get exposure to people who may never get to hear their music.

Con - Bad thing is, yes peoeple are hearing your music but they are just going to find a way to pirate it. Meaning not as much money for all that hard work.

Antonio Abbatiello's curator insight, October 11, 2014 12:13 PM

I agree with the writers view in this article. he speaks about how music streaming services are hurting artists because they are not able to recoup wages that were spent producing the music. I believe the author Mark Foley is a credible writer because he is a musician himself, he has been a featured soloist in the Wichita Symphony Orchestra. I also believe this is a major informational resource for audio industry professionals. I choose this article because I have always wondered what the difference between streaming and piracy is.
