Pink Floyd vs Pandora

I have a lot of friends in the movie and theater industry. I’m always amazed how their unions protect them. Musicians have basically been hung out to try. We have been experimented on by technology companies. Yes ok I love tech and that I can listen to any song I want anytime, anywhere. I love how I can be my own distribution and promotion company. Still there are some who take advantage of us and the streaming services are guilty of that. This week Pink Floyd wrote an opinion piece for USA Today I think you should read (link).

“Internet radio companies are trying to trick artists into supporting their own pay cut…. Sounds good. Who wouldn’t want to be “part of a conversation”? Who doesn’t support Internet radio? What scrooge would refuse to sign such a positive, pro-music statement? Of course, this letter doesn’t say anything about an 85% artist pay cut.” – Pink Floyd
