The Trichordist

All opinions on this matter are totally acceptable, but as I read on the topic more, I am coming to the conclusion that I do want my 10 or 12 dollars to go directly to the artists so they can cover their costs. No middle man. No intermediary. I want the ones that created and recorded the songs I love to listen to, that they get 100% of the 12.00 dollars I might pay for their product. It is no different than needing to buy toothpaste at the local general store. I know I can't get it for free, I have to pay the full price.

Here is an interesting article to review.

Thank you.

i totally agree, sir, when the artist has done all the recording and promoting herself, paying for these things out of pocket. i have to admit that if there is a record company paying for studio time & doing promo work, they should get a cut. right now that cut is too large, i reckon. but i don't have any exact figures at my fingertips, so i am somewhat taking out my ass.

also, by extension, don't you want to give 100% of that toothpaste money directly to the kids assembling it in some sweatshop in china?
