Answer me this: why do bands release a song or single where we can see it on YouTube but not download it legally on iTunes or somewhere else? Seems to me if they put it up when the song is on YouTube this would prevent a lot of theft?
Yes, I always felt like as soon as the song is available on youtube it should be available for purchase on all digital platforms because people who want to support the artists will go buy the song but when it isn't available of purchase, people will just convert the youtube to an MP3 and then that sale of the song is lost. Single sales can drastically change the trajectory of a band/artist/album, if you have a single that is selling well you can get better tours, better interviews, larger pieces written about you in print media and even opportunities to be on TV & radio.
Will there be a part 2 with Tom G Warrior?Jamey Jasta responded on 12/07/2016 Next question
Hi Jamie, longtime supporter of The Jasta Show. I signed up to Gas Digital Network to support you, so I'm only paying for your podcast. My one major gripe with GDN was that they didn't have a RSS feed. Now they do, but you have to be a subscriber to the WHOLE network to get this. Also, after the RSS update, I can no longer comment in the forums. I guess you have to pay close to 10$ a month for that privilege too. It's a huge hassle for me to not be able get the podcast straight in my podcast app. I'm going to unsubscribe from this network as it doesn't give me anything of worth and get it for free a few days later. I will try to support your podcast in some other way. Really disappointed with this whole GDN move, but I of course understand bills have to be paid. Stay HAAARRRD! -PatJamey Jasta responded on 12/07/2016
