Abysmal really.

And Apple News+ looks like it's adopting similar low-paying practices with magazine content for its newly-launched aggregated mag subscriptions... :( :protest: The SOS jury is still out on this service.

Bandcamp says hello i'm thinking! :lol: Streaming services for singles (this is what the masses like anyway) and Bandcamp for albums. I really think all artists should be on there. They pay respectably, and because of that the owners deserve the cut :thumbup: Make them rich, not these muppets who pay the artists and content creators nothing :thumbdown:

But maybe i'm wrong... :headbang:
