A co-worker passed me this infographic this morning courtesy of the site Information Is Beautiful. Its a few months old but still relevant. Due to all the privacy acts and such popping up protecting music artists from being robbed of their music with BitTorrents and other Peer to peer sharing, the site thought it would be interesting to see how much an artist actually makes from being sold and played online. The amazing thing is sites like Spotify and Last.FM where people can stream unlimited music online hardly pay the artist anything! It’s given me a new respect for the iTunes model and a huge nod to CDBaby for helping artists actually make some money.
