Retweeted by David Pakman@jonathanglick @MikeIsaac @pkafka or from data-less bravado?@pkafka @MikeIsaac @jonathanglick OPM@joshuabrustein my point is 70% should go to artists. Now, labels pay artists small share of the 70% they take@MikeIsaac @jonathanglick 100% correct@jonathanglick he is absolutely right on high fidelity being a non-starter.

@tkawaja @RichBTIG it really bombed.@SAI this Pew data is from 2013!Genius. @samfbiddle at his best. http://t.co/1iTUTEAy51 http://t.co/5C9WE5jBxw@mikeyavo @BenedictEvans except there is no more scarcity of content anymore. Everything on tidal also on YouTube and torrents.This is the first time I've seen a launch event in the music business be built around artists signing a contract to charge more money
Retweeted by David Pakman@RichBTIG because, um....all the artists own it!@jonathanglick I'm sure the labels love his approach ("I will charge more AND pay you more money"). No idea who else thinks this works.@jonathanglick I really don't think it matters. If he got the top 500 artists to leave Spotify and YouTube people would just torrent themHere's why Jay-Z's #TIDALforALL music service won't succeed if priced > Spotify no matter how many celebs endorse it. http://t.co/dewwH6Owky@jonathanglick @whitneymcn I just think very few have gotten good yet. People need time to perfect a form.@jonathanglick @whitneymcn yes, it will massively improve. It is a form, like all others.@whitneymcn @jonathanglick realtime video is nascent, blog/tweets are mature, there are already RT video superstars (see YouNow)@jonathanglick I think that is the wrong question.
