Would you rather be the artist, the label, or the delivery service? Regardless, I wouldn’t want to be a lawyer or an accountant working within the world of music economics.
I once read a magazine article about how certain ‘artists’ are writing their songs with the sole intention of making catchy ringtones, since ringtones cost more than songs. (This was a while ago, and I don’t use iTunes, so things might have changed since.) That’s capitalism for you.
