Nice article! This would explain a lot. If history is any indicator then there is no doubt in my mind that the majors are influencing things for their benefit as much as possible. "The cream will always rise to the top", what a bunch of malarkey.

That is because the three major labels all have in their agreements that any editorial or marketing features (or marketing commitments from third party partners like mobile carrier advertising on behalf of the streaming service) are allocated to them pro-rata.

The FTC needs to look into this and the advances the major get that are unrecouped and not shared with artists.
