There are major concerns when you listen to music. Fans of course get shafted sometimes paying high prices for material, and fearing that most of that income does not go to the artists themselves.
Instead of trying to prevent piracy completely as this never works, we should instead aim to provide a space for artists and fans to directly interact, to come to an equilibrium point with price—supply meets demand, and everyone will feel comfortable downloading that music because it is worth what you pay for it. MusicallyFreeCrown is aiming at doing this I believe, and it should definitely work.
They are non-exclusive; so don’t worry about signing your life away.
