I chose this article because it demonstrates how Sweden's digital economy comes mostly from music streaming websites. However, the main difference is that the Swedish record labels depend of Spotify and other streaming sites to boost their revenue rather than just using them. 

Max Gromann's curator insight, July 15, 2013 8:06 PM

Streaming music accounts for 91 percent of sales in Sweden.

J.d. Kidmobile Davis's curator insight, October 12, 2014 7:22 PM

I think streaming can save music sale but only if streaming sights start charging certain amounts for there services. if they don't charge then no because then the whole music industry will go down the tubes because there will definitely be no point of buying anymore music

The Guy Who Wrote One Of The Most Famous Songs Of All Time Says US Copyright Law Cheated Him Of Millions

The Guy Who Wrote One Of The Most Famous Songs Of All Time Says US Copyright Law Cheated Him Of Millions | recording industry | Scoop.it
But a quirk of American copyright law may have cheated songwriter Barrett Strong out of most of it, the New York Times' Larry Rohter reports. (Writer of "Money (That's What I Want)" cheated of it by record labels?
Patrick Lantz's insight:

I think Barrett Strong has no rights to the royalties of his song. Unfortunatly, ingnorance is no excuse for not being paid. This is the entertainment industry; it's cutthroat and messy. If Strong had better knowledge of copyright laws he wouldn't be in this position to begin with.

It was a significant cash windfall for the band and the label and it kept them both moving forward. Nuts and Bolts. “I don't think any artist or label nowadays can make money just selling records,” Kanine says.
Patrick Lantz's insight:

A small time lable makes a big jump through inginuity and a good business ethic. It shows that it is still possible to create a lable, even in times when most lable are being bought out by bigger companies.

Record Labels Accepting Demos | Last Stop Booking

If you want to submit something to a record label, that's fine. However, it's also a waste of time and money. If you really want to catch the attention of a record label, especially a major or well-established independent, you'll ...
Patrick Lantz's insight:

Discusses how recod lables for the most part ignore artist demo tapes and submissions. Pro: Most of the tapes sent to lables are garbage. They are not marketable or they're no good. Plus, there are so many submissions that there would be no way to listen and give feedback to the artists. Cons: If an artist sent in a truly good demo, they will be ignored and in all likelyhood thrown away without being listened to.
