Future of streaming music must include fairness for songwriters

To be clear: songwriters are not asking for a hand out, they only want a fair marketplace in which to sell their intellectual property. Companies like Pandora clearly resist this for one reason: their business thrives on the backs of songwriters, while many songwriters are barely getting by. How this is happening is simple. Digital streaming companies take advantage of the fact that the songwriting and music licensing world exists in the Stone Age, not the Digital Age. – David Israelite, Fox News http://ift.tt/1pnugUR
