Most of us think the people signing the contracts are the ones who need to worry about the financials between streaming services and the artists being streamed on them.
And that makes sense for the most part. Very few of us — people reading Android Central and then taking the time to vote in an online poll — are involved with the music industry. We have no idea what goes on, how cutthroat it all may be, or even how sincere any complaints of unfairness may or may not be. We’re taking a guess at best, and when it comes right down to it we’re not in a position to know much of anything about any of it.
But we do want to stream music. On some level, we all probably want the people making the music we enjoy to make lots of money and continue making it, too. Letting the people involved in the business worry about the business is a bit of a cop-out, but with no real knowledge it’s probably the way we should feel.
