Indies Unite! 700 Labels Launch Campaign For Fair Digital Music Deals

unite!

An ongoing battle with YouTube over alleged heavy handed negotiating tactics and unfair terms for their unlaunched subscription music service, has united the global independent music community on the broader issue of fairness in all digital deals. In a not so veiled jab at YouTube and other digital services, global indie trade group WIN has released an open letter signed by more than 700 independent labels that calls for fair digital music deals.

"The big print giveth and the small print taketh away.” 

That line from Tom Waits headlines the Fair Digital Deals Declaration, an open letter which calls not just for more transparency both between digital music services and labels, but also between the labels and their artists. Indie labels signing on include Domino Recordings, Beggars Group and Secretly Canadian.

Is D2F A Good Strategy For Artists?

Written By @internationalo 

I posted an article about Garth Brooks releasing an digital album and creating his won social media site . After reading that article, it got me to thinking. Will there be more artist to follow this D2F (Direct To Fan) Model?

In 2009, I created my own platform through NING. I built our own social community on that platform to where our fans could sign up, and create their own profiles. They could upload pics, videos, and music on their profile, just like myspace. We would send out an email to all of our members about upcoming releases, tours, and any other news pertaining to Flycat Music Group.
