    NO NO NO! If you sell 10 songs (downloads) you make about six bucks. If a song gets streamed 10 times you sure ain’t gettin’ six bucks!

    There are some things you can do with a radio-style or playlist streaming site that you can’t do with downloads, but technically streaming is downloading, except usually cheaper for the site and end user. YouTube and Spotify make far less money for artists than iTunes.
