This is powerful and music industry changing.
Alex Redman's curator insight, January 26, 12:17 AM
This article details a positive shift forward for label companies and artist ownership over creative rights. Although labels are still involved, Warner Bros has achieved a balance that focuses on an artist-first approach that gives artists direct ownership over their masters and creative rights, as well as profit sharing over royalties. This shift will encourage the further independence emerging over this next decade.

After investigating the source, I believe this article is a major informational resource for audio industry professionals. The article is written by Tim Ingham, who has a bio that states his credentials as a consistent journalist for music and entertainment news across web platforms. The article was objective, giving only the facts of the situation and the opinions of experts in the field. These facts are accurate and links to further research is given throughout the article. The article was written in August 1, 2019 which is extremely recent in music news, only about half a year old.

This deal further the changes in the independent scene in the music industry making it look like the best way to go in the future is independent route instead of an major.

First, in November last year, we had Taylor Swift inking a global deal with Republic Records / Universal Music Group – an agreement under which she appears likely to license her music rights to UMG on a relatively short-term basis. “It’s incredibly exciting to know that I’ll own all of my masters from now on,” said Swift on Instagram when announcing that agreement. “It’s really important to me to see eye to eye with a label regarding the future of our industry.” Those words, of course, became all the more prescient last month, thanks to Swift’s masters-related public fallout with Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun. This week, another major music industry player is stating their joy at having struck a major label deal whereby masters are retained. This time, it’s not an artist doing the celebrating, but Pat Corcoran – the super-manager of Chance The Rapper, and therefore a key architect of one of the most talked about label-free artist campaigns of recent years.

Demontreon Wade's curator insight, November 24, 2019 9:09 PM
We definitely need more artistic advocates such as herself to ensure that there aren’t any more quote unquote starving artist out in the world. People should be paid for their craft.
Music in Africa.net is the largest resource for information and exchange in and for the African music sector. It is also a non profit and considered a reliable source for music related industries.
Clemmie's curator insight, January 27, 12:00 AM
My opinion on the content of this article is that this is a good thing to shine light on in the music industry because she speaks on the fact that stronger legislation is needed to make sure artists are paid for their digital works. My comments on the reliability of the source are positive because as an artist myself it kind of makes you feel low when everyone is benefiting from your creativity besides you. I believe the source is a major informational resource for audio industry professionals because they keep us posted on things that are currently going on in the music industry.
Chris Shelton's curator insight, March 22, 10:42 PM
This is really great content and a brilliant idea from this singer.
