A couple of days ago we wrote a quick article informing our artists that we will no longer be supporting Last.fm through our platform. Artists can now sign up directly to the Last.fm service and receive royalties, thus RouteNote was not required in this process.
I would like to thank all the press who picked up on this story:
Hypebot – RoutNote is pulling it’s clients tracks from music site Last.fm because it says royalty payments have been too low.
Digital Music News – CBS has experienced difficulty ramping premiums and creating a meaningful revenue picture.
Billboard Biz – RouteNote artists are free to join Last.fm on their own.
Last.fm has a great service and we really encourage our artists to join the service directly, then they can use the service for promotional purposes and earn more revenues.
