User-centric streaming payouts: Apple, major labels, new artists…

Apple has internally modelled how a user-centric system of music-royalty payouts would work, in an effort to understand its potential impact on artists and labels, according to Crispin Hunt, chair of songwriting body The Ivors Academy.
“They said ‘Be careful: we’ve modelled how this comes out’,” said Hunt, in a panel session about user-centric payouts at The Great Escape conference in Brighton. “Though some fringes like jazz would do much, much better… in the States, for Apple’s streaming service, in fact Taylor Swift is subsidising everybody else. An awful lot of people are playing Taylor Swift, but her music [royalties] are shared out among everybody.”
Hunt added that streaming service Deezer, which has “done an awful lot of work” analysing the user-centric model, has told him that the model *would* result in a different (and fairer, to independent artists and smaller genres) distribution of royalties.
