Would you go to work every day for a year, or more, to get paid .001% of a PENNY? I don’t think so. But, currently, the unethical practice of paying musicians and song writers .001% of a penny for the music you listen to on a daily basis via the internet is exactly what is happening.
Below is a link to an article by The Trichordist about this issue, along with comments from Bono, LL Cool J, Elton John, Eminem, The Grateful Dead, Prince, and many more.
This form of Internet Slavery forces every artist, famous or not, to be paid less than someone in a third world country, while billions of advertising dollars are illegally made from their music by corporations.
