I tried to search online for an answer but didn’t see one.
I can stream full albums with Myspace now and I was wondering if the bands get any residuals or royalties for each listen.
Now, I am not talking about gaining anything off of the bands page but instead the section on the website that has full albums (with all the album info) that seem to be up and running with permission from the record labels. I assume they have permission because albums from some labels (like Revelation) are all up and listenable, while others (like Epitaph) are missing. These albums seem to be legitimately uploaded and not done by fans or random people.
Did Myspace strike deals with labels to get the music and if so do they pay artists sorta like a radio station is supposed to?
