  • It makes sense if you think of it in terms of songwriters and performers. The writer of the song should get paid when the lyrics/melody etc.. of the song is used for something, and the owner of the song should get paid when the actual song is used.
    The performer gets paid for their studio time to perform the song and never again unless they go on tour. If they’re union members, they get paid for new use such as a song being put in a movie or in a video game.

    The problem is, artists who don’t read the contracts and don’t understand how it all works end up signing their publishing rights away and don’t get paid shit except by touring. For instance the metal band Slipknot has said they’ve never made one cent off their album sales and they’ve sold millions of copies.

    And you typically signed all this stuff away because most artists can’t afford to rent studio time to make a professional sounding record and then distribute it — that all has changed and Chance is a pioneer in putting out his own stuff and more importantly – owning 100% of it.
