Re: itunes Royalties

as i said there must be a threshold before they pay the artist. you have to exceed so many thousand downloads before they spend the money to send you money. 10% isnt enuff they have next to ZERO Overhead with their service, considering they make money off the hardward which requires the software they have already developed.

Private printing is not a cost effective way to make cds. altho id rather have it in my own hands then let itunes get 900$ for my 100$ and hold it till the interest is in their pockets making most of that 10% back.

In my store local vendors/ musicians get priced at 9.99 - 14.99 and i keep the .99 for shelf space/paper work. That helps to offset the costs of production. And they get a double facing on the wall which is my most valuable real estate.
