Or you could check out the upcoming project in the UK called OCL which would give tech companies access to complete music catalogues from every service and it costs them nothing at all...they don't even need to secure any rights.

It does make sense, but then again artists would indirectly invest (whether they want or not) in startups if those dont pay license-fees. And why should they do that if the startup wont invest themselves? But yeah, its way to difficult and expensive to get initial lisences today

With these new companies eager to disrupt everyone else, what is their incentive not to continue driving the value of music down to zero? That actually seems like what is already happening.
