    I was poking around randomly on the site so I don't remember where it was exactly, but I think I remember reading something about 30% royalty.

    I wouldn't know for sure, but isn't that better than what artists get from those robber-baron music label suits?

    independent artists make about 60 cents per 99 cent track through various services. distributors take a 10% cut of that if you upload to iTunes. distributors also charge for services (creating UPC codes for the tracks and other shit), and some even charge a yearly fee, totaling around $50-$70. track approvals on iTunes take forever. artists on major labels make significantly less on digital sales, but then again, they get major label promotion and distribution (digital and physical).

    Thanks for the info...

    I've always suspected it was a convoluted heap of horseshit you had to wade through just to get out to the people.
