    Fascinating article at Billboard. A long article but worth a read. Here’s an excerpt:

    “As a once-vertical industry disintegrates and democratises, the lower costs and increased options for producing and bringing music to market – coupled with the revitalisation of music rights and the new economic models and opportunities presented by streaming – is fundamentally revolutionising the economics and operations of the industry at its core.”

    The full article here.

    I also believe with the exploration into blockchain technology (remember Bitcoin) for rights management and copyright protection times are achangin’!

    I definitely see the potential of blockchain as a tool of copyright – it could essentially provide a singular, ‘original’ digital file, but it might take the whole industry to adopt the technology in order to give a backbone to the idea.

    interesting to read that they offer free distribution, as opposed to CD Baby (and others) cost to distribute..

    Remember this thread a couple of years ago … looks like the Digital Art world has made the leap to using Blockchain as a way to enshrine ownership of a digital asset.
