Damon Krukowski of Galaxie 500 has written a column for Pitchfork discussing the business of royalties since releasing the band's first LP in 1988 to streaming services' payouts now.
From the ColumnTo put this into perspective: Since we own our own recordings, by my calculation it would take songwriting royalties for roughly 312,000 plays on Pandora to earn us the profit of one-- one-- LP sale. (On Spotify, one LP is equivalent to 47,680 plays.)

The RIAA and the DiMA (Digital Music Association) are arguing that royalties from digital downloads and streaming music for songwriters should be lowered. Not exactly sure what royalties are? Read a good write-up here.
