Continuing the discussion from How badly do streaming services rip off musicians? A chart, updated:
Not to speak for @clifyt but…
How do you think this is possible? Please tell me how you think your idea works here?
“You can lead a horse to water …”
And not to be rude but there you are outside the industry believing a lot of mythology that naiveté in musicians is something precious for musicians and that labels are mustache twirling bad guys. That mythology is popular and it sells, articles which push that draw ads to eyeballs.
Have you ever signed an employment contract of any kind or any contract for work for hire? Did you read it? Did you question any of the points or ask for any changes? What makes you think the situation were talking about is any different at all?
Two people with very different experience in different parts of the music business have been telling you their experience but its looking like you don’t believe either me or @clifyt at all.
I don’t mean any of the above as personal insults, I just don’t get your resistance to the experience of others on this.
Seems obvious really. The honor is going to the person/band not the label.
