First Apple iTune's Match Payments Arriving, TuneCore Gets $10,000

Tunecore has just gotten its first payment for $10,000 from Apple's iTune's Match, and CEO Jeff Price believes that's a hopeful sign. "Seeing an additional $10,000+ appear out of the thin air for TuneCore Artists by people just listening to songs they already own is amazing!"  Now, $10,000 for all the acts that TunecCore distributes isn't much money, but it is a start.

I agree with Jeff when he says, "Services like iMatch, Spotify, Simfy, Deezer and others are bringing that innovation - it will take some time to learn which are the ones consumers want."

Has your iTune's Match check arrived, and what do you think of it?
