Next Big Problem

As this article in last week's New York Times points out, the next big Industry problem will be streaming rates.  Artists are starting to complain because they are getting peanuts while the streamers are making more money and picking up more subscribers.

I have the free Spotify, but pay for Rhapsody.  And I still buy music from Itunes and Amazon.  But I appear to be in the minority.

Read the article.  It's not something that's new.  We've been hearing about this since last year.  But as the Spotify's of the world get bigger, artists are going to want a bigger royalty rate.
It's the next big problem facing an Industry that never solved their old problems.

Here's the author's footnotes from his column.  Also a good read.
