Re: Nice business model
>>Apple is shifting the vast majority of that risk onto the content producers
What "risk" exactly?
Let's look at a venn diagram--
Circle #1: The content producer's music is so crap that the only time anybody would want to listen to it is during a free trial period
Circle #2: The content producer's music is so crap that it gets no marketing value out of the increased "airplay" the song is getting during said trial period
Circle #3: The content producer would have sold a bunch of songs during said trial period
I agree that if you're at the intersection of all these circles, it would be pretty bad for you financially. But it seems unlikely and if your music is that crap anyway then maybe you should consider a different line of work.
