Morrissey: Don't Buy My Music
from the no-royalties dept
We keep hearing from the big record labels and the RIAA how they’re doing everything they do “for the artists.” Yet, everywhere we turn, we see artists who are anything but happy by what’s being done
to for them. The latest, sent in by Bryan Colley, is that the singer Morrissey is going on fan sites, warning fans not to buy the new box sets of his music that EMI is putting out, noting that not only did he have nothing whatsoever to do with them, he won’t see a penny in royalties from them. But it’s all for the artists, right? These days, when artists are finally learning to connect with fans directly, those fans want to know that when they choose to spend money on an artist, that money actually goes to the artist.
