Re: [Harp-L] ITunes
Since my CD is available at CD Baby, it is also made available to many
digital download venues. One of which is I Tunes. I most definitely get paid
for the downloads. It's been a great thing as far as I can see. However CD
Baby does all the distributing and accounting which makes it a no brainer.
Now Mark's situation may be different because he is with a record label as
opposed to my situation, where I am the record company.

Here's a question that I hope someone has a reasonable answer to. Within
the last year or so, I have been using ITunes for all of my music buying.
They have a great selection of blues, allow you to buy specific songs, and
work flawlessly for playback and creating mixes. I had thought that the
artists were all hip to this and got a piece of the take. Songs cost 99
cents apiece $9.99 for most complete CD's.
I went to see Mark Hummel at a show and talked with him. I mentioned my
ITunes habit and he said "Wussat?" I explained the whole Apple/IPOD thing
and ITunes. I also said that most of his CD's were on ITunes and
available for purchase. He said "Hmm, i ain't receved a $#)$#&)#$ penny
from these guys" So now my question is, do they receive a piece of the
take? Does the record company get a piece? I assume that they must
otherwise, there would be one heckuva stink being raised. So do artists
like Hummel, Rick Estrin, Piazza, the Clarke estate, etc... get a piece of
the take? They all have CD's on ITunes.
Anybody got an answer? I'd love to hear. Also would be glad to forward
any info to Hummel since I have his email now.
