Ephemera, Baubles and Items of Transitory Joy
"Spotify doesn’t pay artists directly, instead paying those who hold the rights to a song or album (normally record labels, distributors, aggregators and collection societies) who take a cut and give artists the rest. It also doesn’t pay a flat rate per stream, rather, paying rights holders based on “streamshare,” a figure calculated from the number of streams of a rights holder divided by the total number of streams in a particular market. So, the amount rights holders earn per stream varies. But most estimates range from around $0.003 to $0.005 per stream." - The Seattle Times#
