Can bands and content providers co-exist? TuneCore CEO thinks so.

Of course he does. Jeff Price is the CEO of the company. But his argument actually makes rational sense. His company’s model is that a website controlled by the artist allows them to pick the advertisers off their page and get money from the revenues. Most of the media (and scenesters) have always sided with the right of Napster, Pirate Bay, or YouTube about their content–but if you were the artist wouldn’t you want some money off your song instead of giving it to those content providers for free?

This example makes the most sense: “Imagine ABC getting the TV show ‘Lost’ for free, then broadcasting it and keeping all the advertising revenue.” From HuffPo.

  1. Thanks for the mention, Avery. Yep, Jeff makes a lot of sense. When he and I and our tech guru Gary founded TuneCore, we were looking for a way to make the industry respond to artists needs, to the changing reality, and to something almost unheard of in the music biz: “fair play.” I think we’ve come darn close!

    Thanks again. You and your readers are welcome to write me if you’ve any questions about TuneCore or the industry.
