Soundcloud are changing the they work out how much to pay royalties to artists. They say it will be fairer on artists.

I'd be interested to know what people here think.

Has anyone got experience of being paid royalties from Soundcloud or other streaming services and would like to share your experience and thoughts of the changes with us?

I think that's a very interesting idea. Be interesting to see how it works out but it's good to see companies experimenting with alternative models.

I'm not on one of the paid soundcloud options so no skin in the game for me.
