BFM Digital Responses To TuneCore Attacks On Grooveshark!!!
Source: Digital Music News
My artists get paid by Grooveshark. That's because we did a deal with them. It's not a lot of money for them. But you can say the same for lots of streaming services including Pandora, Spotify, etc. Actually, I get more money from Grooveshark than from other more acceptable services such as Last.fm or We7.
I find Jeff's comments to be hypocritical. He condemns Grooveshark instead of doing a deal to monetize it. And on the other hand, he holds a no-compromise position with AmazonUK which is causing his artists to actually lose sales. And that's just because they won't support his publishing admin claims.
So, let's add it up. Tunecore artists, in the vast majority, don't earn more than their yearly renewal fees. Most won't recoup their publishing admin fee. So who is taking advantage of artists? – Steven Corn, BFM Digital
