That is a great perspective. This cellist lady sounds smart, and she understands that information can be as good as money if you know how to use it.

"I want my data and in 2012 I see absolutely no reason why I shouldn't own it," she wrote.

Go fark yourself.

It's not your data, it's my data. You want it, you can sodding well pay me for it.

If the artists had any sense, they wouldn't be putting all their effort into trying to force Pandora to pay a much higher rate than satellite or the music channels on your cable box.

They would be much more worried about the fact that AM/FM stations don't have to pay anything at all.

so she wants more listener info from her Performance Rights Orgs? It seems to me they're the ones doing the distributing.

If only somebody had pages on a world wide web, with info, and music and such that she could promote herself and sell her triumphant underpaid-for music that she could have complete and total control over all of the information from it.....

She is paying you for it, you listen to her music, she gets your data.

Whatever they decide, please don't take away my Spotify Premium at 9.99 per month.

I'd be pretty emotionally screwed if I no longer had unlimited access to (almost) all of the world's music at my fingertips 24/7. I have some playlists that I have spent MONTHS slowly curating to perfection with hundreds of songs in each.

At this point, I pretty much regard Spotify as a "utility payment" as essential as internet, water, & power.

FTFY

This statement is always true on general principles.

Over the air radio doesn't pay royalties, it charges payola. Radio play is the best advertising recording labels can buy.

I used to DJ on, and help manage, hobby-type Internet "radio stations." The only listener data that could be collected, that I know of, would be based on the listeners' IP addresses, i.e. Their IP block and/or ISP info, in order to get an idea of their location. The technology doesn't really allow for a whole lot of listener demographic data collection like she's asking for.

The only work-around that might give this artist what she wants is if a station was set up to only allow logged-in users to listen and require user profile data to be entered upon registration. But 1) requiring listeners to log in to listen would kill 99% of all stations on the 'net, and 2) there's no way of knowing whether people are entering factual information in their profiles. Then there's 3) privacy concerns.

I really don't see how the data she's after can even be gathered.
