This story on techcrunch.com briefly mentions a report about revenue distribution for music. The interesting thing about the chart is that, with the advent of download sales:
- Retailors are the big losers
- Record companies, Digital Service Providers (I assume like iTunes store) and credit card companies are the winners.
- Artists lose slightly.
I havn’t looked all that much into this chart, where the data came from, what it is really saying etc. …. so there’s undoubtedly more to the story.
