43 folders talks about Glenn McDonald’s iTunes customisation which allows him to auto-pay artists he listens to. This is a fascinating description of how his system works. Very elaborate, clever and balanced. This could be used as the best payment model around for paying artists for their music.
If this was plugged into the likes of Indy and any artist who submitted had to have a paypal account, then it might be a good way of sending them micropayments. It’d wreck the record labels. I wonder would IRMA survive if this idea became popular ?
