Great post.

I think the key issue is exactly what you hit on that the labels do not have the knowledge or infrastructure in-house to really make these deal from an artist perspective.

To top it of they want a cut of every revenue pie for which they traditionally could not touch and which was the Artist and their managements revenue stream as Labels are no known for their transparency in paying up on mechanical royalties.

I do think however that Live Music promoters like Live Nation moving into the 360 deal realm have more economies of scale which could possibly deliver for artists and their management. However the issues of artists best interest still have not been sufficently ackniwledged.

Be good to get your thoughts on this and the article I have examining this on my blog:

I will be placing your blog on my links page.
