Even though I still buy CD's to support musicians, I tend to stream their music when at the computer as I think that they will get paid twice. I know that acts aren't paid a lot for this, but every little helps. Really? We're talking it not worth bothering with:

There is a topic focussing on this:
http://www.tvsmith.com/forum/index.php?topic=7419.0

A few quotes from the posts there:

--- Quote ---In the digital marketplace, everyone seems to have found a way to make a living off music except the creators who actually record the songs.

To be honest, my preferred way to listen to music is on CD, as unfashionable as that might be. You push a button, the music plays, and then itís over ó no ads, no privacy terrors, no algorithms!

YouTube had the worst per-stream payouts.  At $0.00074 per stream, artists and content creators would make $1,472 after 1,989,189 million plays.
