Re: My Song Was Played 3.1 Million Times on Pandora. My Check Was $39...
"but the other option -- a world without pandora -- seems to be a worse option."
It seems increasingly clear that the only way these "radio streaming" sites like Pandora and "on demand streaming" sites like Spotify will ever make a profit is by driving down what they need to pay for their music content.
In other words the only way these "music sites" will make a profit is by totally shafting the people that compose and make the music.
This cannot stand!
If they can't survive without giving a completely fair shake to musicians, songwriters and all the other creators of recorded music then they do not deserve to survive.
