In a deviation from the normal format, this week CMU’s Andy Malt and Chris Cooke examine the debate around the fairness of streaming royalties for artists and songwriters, which has been growing during the COVID-19 shutdown. Over the next two episodes, we’ll be discussing the ten things people often get wrong about streaming, and what they need to know in order to win the argument. Setlist is sponsored by 7digital.

01: There are no per-stream rates (00:09:37)
02: A million streams isn’t as much as it sounds (00:18:06)
03: It is almost certainly time to review subscription prices – though probably not in the middle of a global pandemic (00:21:09)
04: Re-slicing the pie so songwriters get more is complicated (00:33:37)
05: The US is different, because it’s always different (00:37:17)
