Jaylon Goston's curator insight, March 23, 2019 12:25 AM
 In my opinion the article really shows what you can accomplish in  three years with drive and determination. Jody Gerson is a true example of a hard worker. What makes it more inspiring is that she's a woman making history in a male dominated world and as a man that is great to see.  
 The author of this article name is Tim Ingham. He is the founder and publisher of Music Business Worldwide, which has serviced the global industry with new, analysis and jobs since 2015. he does really does have any contact information on the web but i've found his twitter which is (@InghamTim). The article he wrote about Jody Gerson I don't think this article is meant to be about any issues or to take sides. It's not to sell a product or service. It's also not meant to persuade anyones thoughts or beliefs.The article isn't even for entertainment just factual information.
The article  has factual evidence because the links in the article gives you more insight on whats being said. The sources appear to be reputable and accurate. Vivendi is quoted and listed as Universal's French owner. This was written February 14th, 2019. The site was published Worldwide November 23rd, 1993 and Bizness April 18th, 2011. It is no record of when the last update was. I didn't find any old links while on this site.

Music companies can still be successful on earning revenue in modern times even with the internet giving consumers access to a variety of ways to get downloadable music. The article was published on February 14, 2019 by Tim Ingham on Music Business Worldwide.

I think the article is informative of one of the big 3 major labels and is interesting to read.
I think the article is reliable as the info provided also has other links to back it up.
I think it is a major informational resource for audio professionals because there is a date when it was published as well as who wrote it and other links that aid in the article.

Travis Jeffersons insight:
Music streaming are starting to replace old-school record labels in offering advances to independent artists. With Apple signing acts, it appears as if the streaming services may become the new norm; replacing traditional record labels.
Alex Redman's curator insight, January 26, 12:06 AM
This article is showing that Apple is taking a stance on supporting independent artists and creator empowerment. By signing a French rap duo that does not work under a label and owns their own creative rights, Apple is suggesting that independent artists deserve respect and freedom to partner with services without the intervention of labels. It is an optimistic move, especially since Apple proved their stance is serious after signing Frank Ocean as an independent artist around the same time frame.

I believe that Rolling Stone is a major informational resource for audio industry professionals after evaluating the source for credibility. The author is Tim Ingham. At the bottom of the article, it offers a short bio about Tim and his credentials, as well as stating that he writes weekly articles for Rolling Stone. The article is objective, giving many different sources for its information. These references are also accurate, with links to assertions linked throughout the article. Rolling Stone is a long established source for music entertainment news, and can be trusted for continually updated content.

This could be a huge deal in the hip hop/music industry. I feel like a company like Apple signing artist could really change the landscape of the music industry.
Kodie Tillman's curator insight, May 24, 8:52 PM
I think it’s great that artist have more ways they can be independent. I also think it’s good that big companies are stepping in to help these artists gain a foothold in the main stream music scene. To own everything you have created is a beautiful thing.

I think the article is not clear. On how to fully read the entire article as it is cut off.
I don’t see this article as a reliable source nor do I think that it is a major informational resource for audio professionals due to not having the full article there and not able to fully read.
