How does a rock star get paid these days? If I'm sitting in the global HQ listening/watching an Arcade Fire song on YouTube how much $$$ is the band pulling in? Is it still profitable for SONY Records to sell an actual CD? Does Apple get a bigger cut of that Matthew Good song than Matthew Good himself? Is Neko Case (greatest singer of all time) getting a cut when I hear her 77 times on Pandora?
All of these questions, and more, answered right here.
