David Ross is a respected analyst in country music and author of The Digital Solution: A Plan for Collecting and Distributing Streaming Music Royalties (get it on Amazon here). A core component of Ross’ ‘Digital Solution’ is something called the StreamCollect Music Fund, which makes all streams equal (on-demand, online radio, video), and requires uniform payments from mobile and broadband customers, ISPs, and online streaming music companies. Most importantly, it results in equitable payments to both songwriters and musicians.
(note: this has nothing to do with downloads, CDs, and other forms of music distribution. Just streaming.)
