New study explores impact of user-centric music-streaming payouts
Posted on: 5 mars 2018, by : Stuart Dredge

‘User-centric’ streaming payouts refers to a proposed system where the royalties generated by someone’s subscription would be divided only between the artists that they listen to, rather than going into a central pool divided by market-share on the platform as a whole.
‘If you only listen to Ed Sheeran, your money only goes to Ed Sheeran’ is the high-concept pitch for it, although in truth, it’s seen more as a way for fans of smaller artists and niche genres to be sure that their money *isn’t* going to Ed Sheeran, as it would under the current ‘pro rata’ systems of payouts on services like Spotify. No offence to Ed!
None of the major streaming services currently operate a user-centric model, although Deezer said in 2017 that it was exploring the idea.
