A representative for Conor Oberst has confirmed that TMZ's story about Conor being dropped from his label is bullshit.
Conor's court filing doesn't say he was dropped by his label. He has NOT been dropped by his label.

Tim Cohen of The Fresh and Only's, writing for for Impose Magazine, gives his take on how artists should view critical feedback.
I agree that music is meant to be heard, discussed, danced to, felt by many and the world over. And each has the unalienable right to like or dislike whatever one experiences. This reviewer seems to identify as part of a bigger group, i.e. the listening public, and asserts that “nobody,” not one of them, wanted us to create said album. “Wow!” I thought for a second, “It really IS us against them, isn’t it?” But, reviewer: Speaking on behalf of more than just yourself, as an editorial journalist, is not only dangerous, it is symptomatic of a greater confusion....

The Financial Times is reporting that YouTube is re-negotiating with indie labels after the backlash they received recently.
But the uproar that followed the revelations has prompted YouTube to make a last-minute U-turn. The world's largest video streaming company is allowing more time to negotiate a solution with labels, although it still intends to block them if they cannot reach agreement, according to people familiar with the matter.

The first half of the year is trending downward for music sales.
Album sales dropped nearly 15% compared with the same period last year, and overall music consumption, which combines sales and streaming activity, dropped 3.3%, according to figures released by the sales and streaming monitoring service. But taken individually, on-demand streaming of music and videos showed a combined increase of 42% during the first half of this year, with video streaming up 35% and audio streaming jumping just over 50% compared with 2013.

Taylor Swift has penned an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal on the future of music:
In mentioning album sales, I'd like to point out that people are still buying albums, but now they're buying just a few of them. They are buying only the ones that hit them like an arrow through the heart or have made them feel strong or allowed them to feel like they really aren't alone in feeling so alone. It isn't as easy today as it was 20 years ago to have a multiplatinum-selling album, and as artists, that should challenge and motivate us.

There are always going to be those artists who break through on an emotional level and end up in people's lives forever. The way I see it, fans view music...
