→ Pandora Paid Over $1,300 for 1 Million Plays, Not $16.89

Two things:

(1) I am not surprised at all that people would try to make it look like Pandora is treating artists poorly and/or not paying them significant royalties.1

(2) The real problem in the model is not Pandora, but the fact that the record company gets 50% of the royalty Pandora pays. That is what has to change in this new economy.

  1. It is especially laughable when standard radio stations pay nothing.
