It is a very good read. I am thinking about when designing a streaming service, making it weighting towards the subscriber share method instead of the the Big Pool method seems to make much more sense. However, the streaming services didn’t choose to do so. I wonder what were the major obstacles that prevented them from doing so then and now. Was it merely because the Big Pool method meant less code for the streaming services when they were still early startups without resources? And now they have become much larger companies and are much more afraid of change?
Streaming also seemed to try to make itself into the replacement of selling CDs. Besides this, I would also say that fans can choose other methods to support that provide a large share percentage to the artists, such as supporting the artist directly.
