You are very good at stating the facts however you in fact have no idea about the actual facts. In truth you have not idea of the royalty rates paid to the individual artists for either their 15 track CD (more likely to be 10 tracks if you understand how things were done back in the old days) or for their stream. You are using figures that more than likely are nowhere near accurate. The royalty rate paid by the streaming services are paid to the owners of the copyright who in the vastte majority of cases is not the artist. On one hand you complain that the artists have been ripping you off for years by only having 1 or 2 decent tracks on their CD's & the rest filler & yet now you are expected us to listen to the full 15 tracks. To me this appears that you are using shifting logic to manipulate the math.
