Everyone's favorite friendly superstar millionaire celebrity just got G on Apple! When taylor Swift infers that you have acted in a greedy and selfish way it cuts pretty deply. Within hours of her VERY public post (and the mini-media frenzy over it) Apple reverses its decision and everyone is happy. All is right in the world.
. . . or is it?
We tackle this issue. What does this REALL mean in the real world? Will artists REALLY get paid full royalties (by everyone - this is not about Apple; it is about the industry as a whole), or will this fade away from public view and return the usual "artists being screwed perpetually by record labels and online services?" Will Apple force everyone else to treat people fairly (wow! Apple for global karma police)? And what about authors? Authors have no TS to help us - but does it really matter?
We take a look and make fun of everyone involved. Other than that this is just another leson on how to read tarot cards. We do our best to make all of this easy. Hopefully we made it fun as well.
Thanks for listening! :-)
