OUR C.L.A.T.A. CHICK ANJ CAME ACROSS AN ARTICLE THAT MIGHT INTEREST YOU ANDORA USERS. TAKE IT AWAY ANJ!!
Our friends over at Campus Progress spoke to Pandora Radio Founder and CEO on Thursday. Tim Westergren shinned some light on evil record labels and his opinion on major changes to the music industry that artists and consumers can expect to see in the coming years.
He also shinned some light on that annoying "Are You Still Listening" message that pops up on Pandora every once in a while. ..
"Pandora operates under what's called a statutory license. A federal law called the Digital Millennium Copyright Act governs our industry. Following the DMCA, we pay what's called a performance fee, which is a per-song fee that goes to the performers of the songs. It's actually split half to musicians and half to the record label."
Aaaaahhh, so you do actually pay the artists whose songs are played on Pandora. And keep the tunes coming to us for free. That's what's up!
