http://www.downhillbattle.org/itunes/index.html Very interesting stuff. As a musician, I've always been offended by the 5 major labels and their unbelievablly terrbile treatment of artists. This site states the truth -- most artists will NEVER see a penny from their iTunes sales, until they recoup ALL of the expenses incurred from recording and producing the album (100s of thousands of dollars, if the major label has their way), promoting the album (possibly millions of dollars), and sending you on tour. The label uses NONE of their own money to do this. Their 50%+ cut of the album sales goes to them and only them. The artists measly cut goes to pay back all of the expenses, and in a vast majority of cases, the artist winds up owing the label money at the end of the contract, or is forced into recording more albums (at a higher cost of production the second time around, since the first one "did so well"), so they lose even MORE money. It's fully retarded. I like the idea on this web site. Burn the album, and mail the artist 5 bucks. They'd have to sell 100 albums to ever see that much money, and the label probably wouldn't even let them keep it anyway. Also of note for the hip-hop fans, who do you think rents the mansions and expensive cars that all these rappers drive around in? The label! To uphold their image of being millionaires from the "rap game," while they really have no money, and no assets, and as soon as the label is done with them, they send them packing and ask for the mansion rent money back.
