Piracy has been a hot topic in the music industry since the early days of Napster. With the coming of the Digital Age, the music industry was turned upside down and on its head, then pretty much smacked with a bus and left for dead.

Out of the ashes came a massive Phoenix of millions of indie musicians who, like a pack of rabid zombies, have revolutionized the very definition of music through their devouring of new technology, leaving the old dinosaur gatekeepers in the dust. 

The reality is, unless you are Adele or Taylor Swift, connected to a multimillion dollar corporation, you are depending on you, just you, to reach your music fans. The beauty behind this is that you can dictate the price and value of your projects without worrying about a gatekeeper. The downside? Well, be sure to know that you need to find ways to earn income outside of selling music downloads. In many cases, your music is now a marketing tool, not your primary source of income, which instead comes from concert ticket sales, licensing, sponsorships, freelancing, education, writing, or even crowdfunding.

What drives this new crazy music market economy?

Free. Yep, FREE. 

Sharing information over the Internet costs listener and musician very little, outside of the time it takes to click a BUY or DOWNLOAD button. There are some upsides to this, even if it results in piracy and lost of sales at the old album prices of yesteryear.
