Imagined Negotiation Dialogues Between Labels and Streaming Services

Label: So let me get this straight. We currently offer our albums for download at $10 a pop.
Streaming service: Yup.
Label: And you’re proposing that we go in with you and a bunch of other labels to have our albums available on demand through the internet.
Streaming service: Yeah.
Label: At the same $10, which we would share with the rest of your partners, after you take your cut for administrative costs and other things.
Streaming service: That’s right.


I think this is why I can’t stream anything from Warp on Rdio.
