The grossest offender is "Spotify" they are the leader in music streaming and are set up to remain so. FUCK YOU Spotify and FUCK YOU too Deezer. You can suck Deez nuts.
Obviously making music for most people is a hobby and an ever elusive dream. Music is really just a popularity contest. So even if an artist was allowed to stream an online album for a reasonable $ amount per play and keep 100% of the profits it doesn't mean anyone will like said music/artist and stream it or pay money to purchase it.
That isn't the issue here. The issue is that you should be paid a fair percentage for your music that is streamed or purchased. Streaming is just like renting the music. Last I heard renting still meant paying a reasonable amount for the use of the rented item.
By the way I'm sure what Spotify pays "Uniform Motion" is different from what "Jay Z" gets paid for streaming. But I'm sure the percentage that Jay Z is getting is also a crime.
