In other words... Robbery. I'm not sure why these streaming services think can get away with not giving full royalties.

Their belief that they can "get away with it", depends largely on whether or not publishers give in to their terms. It sounds to me that in this case (unless those terms change) "The best deal, is no deal".

Publishers need to collectively refuse Amazon's terms. The most important being the "If we can't have you, no one can have you" clause.

Musicians need to put a value on their own work, or perhaps I should say - musicians need to put their own value on their work. If you don't, someone else will!
