The National Music Publishers’ Association wants to increase royalty rates by 66% .. why? because .. The National Music Publishers’ Association has asked for the royalty rate increase and has said it believes everyone will benefit because the digital music market is growing.
This is curious .. what exactly has the National music publisher’s association done to increase the digital music market? Nothing. In fact – historically bodies such as these have been anti digitization. When the digital market does emerge – then they come out of the woodwork claiming revenue .. and become a threat to iTunes!
