recording industry
Recording Industry:

“[P]erhaps most importantly, the creative artists lose. Musicians, singers, songwriters and producers don’t get the royalties and fees they’ve earned. Virtually all artists (95%) depend on these fees to make a living.”

Lawsuit Math
  • 3000 people sued
  • For $3000 each
  • Out of 4-230 million

3,000 / 4,000,000 • $3000 = $2.50

3,000 / 230,309,616 • $3000 = $0.039
