    Default How Much Do Music Artists Earn Online?

    Recently, the UK government passed The Digital Economy Act which included many, perhaps draconian, measures to combat online music piracy (including withdrawing broadband access for persistent pirates).


    Much was proclaimed about how these new laws would protect musicians and artists revenue and livelihoods.


    But how much money do musicians really get paid in this new digital marketplace?


    How Much Do Music Artists Really Earn Online?



    This image is based on an excellent post at The Cynical Musician called The Paradise That Should Have Been about pitiful digital royalties. (Thanks to Neilon for pointing that out). Iíve taken his calculations and added a few more.


    As ever, this was incredibly difficult to research. Industry figures are hard to get hold of. Some are even secret. Last.Fmís royalty and payment system is beyond comprehension. (If you can explain it to me, please get in touch)


    Note: these figures do not include publishing royalties (paid to composers of songs). The full spreadsheet of data does though. You can see all the numbers and sources here:http://bit.ly/DigitalRoyalty
