Bryan Posted November 13, 2022 Share Posted November 13, 2022 (edited) Listening, as I do, to the radio while taking a bath, I've come across complaints from various people who work creatively. We all know the situation with regards to photography, where established shooters have seen their income shrink in recent years, but the same applies to musicians and authors. The growth of streaming services has killed the income source that many musicians depended upon from the sales of records, then tapes and CDs, today they get next to nothing from the companies hosting their work. Likewise authors selling digital books have seen their income slashed as the big boys have taken control. What can be done, well you can still buy records, CDs and downloads of CDs, and attend live concerts, you don't have to stream. While books can still be bought as hard copy or digitally direct from the writers. Most of my friends pay monthly for a free delivery account with you know who, but I refuse to do so. It's so easy to fall into the trap, I've had to rescue my wife from their clutches as a single incorrect key press drags you into their web, and she, like me, won't support their activity. How about you guys, are you playing into the hands of these international corporations who are killing the income stream of many creative people?
