How To Make Streaming Royalties Fair(er)

Let’s change how streaming royalties are calculated, and save the full-length album while we’re at it

OK, So who got the benefit of the $10 I paid in subscription fees?

Share of royalties from subscription revenue generated soley by Butchers Of The New Frontier

How could this be?

Here’s what I think a fair(er) streaming royalty distribution might look like:

Share of royalties from subscription revenue generated soley by Butchers Of The New Frontier
Share of royalties from subscription revenue when Butchers Of The New Frontier is responsible for 75% of the subscription revenue.
Share of royalties from subscription revenue when Butchers Of The New Frontier is responsible for 1% of the subscription revenue.

What will the major record labels think about all this?
