the Silent September

Music

Yesterday in my feed reader suggestions an interesting, and long, article on the state and the illness of many music’ streaming services – like Spotify or Apple Music – came to my attention.

Streaming Music is Ripping You Off is this article by Cuepoint – a musical magazine inside the pages of Medium.com – that unfolds explaining in details how the royalties paid to the artists you listen are calculated and how much of them are actually given to those artists and not some other chosen by the system…

They make clear, and show why, that there’s something broken (can we dare to say rotten?) in the algorithms chosen by those services. Then proposes to fight back all of this with a simple hack.

Have you read it? What do you think about it? Personally I’ve already choose some young and talented italian artists to support that way…
