Can’t say that I’m familiar with Amanda Palmer’s music, but I find her approach to getting paid for it interesting.
We’ve been struggling a little with that these days. As one of the members of our band who is also known as Tricky Mouse was recently asked for licensing information regarding some songs being placed in film. Having been previously burned before by a publishing/licensing company and having recently delved into software and internet art “creative commons” licensing and how effective and creatively dynamic it can be, we find ourselves with more questions than answers… but exciting questions!!!
What, if anything, should we be selling? Historically it was never the physical copies of the music that made a musician money, it was the touring, the t-shirts, the Victorian Age sugar daddies… Some interesting insights all over the place. downloading music?
We will keep you posted!
