That's absolutely fucking ridiculous. Yeah it sucks that labels and the industry is in such a bad shape right now, but for them to take away money from the artists like that? Digital downloads is soley based of the music that is created by a) the artist, and b) the producer recording it for them. Thats all an mp3 is comprised of. Especially with small label bands and unsigned bands they fund the money for them to record it themselves! That makes me so angry. Royalty rates for physical copies of cd's are so low now because of terrible cd sales, and with all the money distro and labels take there's no money left for the bands. The fact that royalty rate on digital digital downloads are a lot higher than physical cd's really help a lot of bands out.
