I am looking for links with hard facts on how much an artist makes off of iTunes versus what they would make off of a physical album sale. A guy I work with states that iTunes rips off artists and they make hardly any money at all. One would think that without having to deal with packaging, marketing, and getting the product to stores there would be much less overhead to sell via iTunes. That being said you would think the Artist would make the same amount, if not more off of an iTunes album sale versus a store purchase. Oh well that is my opinion. Is there anyone out there that has links to sites with Hard data? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
