There's that wonderful four letter word again. Thing is if an artist gives their music to the library for FREE where people can "borrow" it and copy it for FREE, and they offer to perform at the library for FREE, how do they earn any money from this "great" exposure? Oh, I guess they also found a landlord that will give them an apartment or home for FREE.....


From the lucrative library licensing money, of course :-)


The writer of this article seems to think "marketing" is the same as giving music away for free. When authors license their electronic books to the library for Kindle and similar devices, the authors are paid, and the book is lent to the user for a limited time, after which it expires. If libraries actually want to help musicians, they should consider licensing music through arrangements like that, which actually bring musicians and songwriters some revenue.
