A transition is taking place from paid downloads to streaming, and ownership of music to access to it.

With the ongoing decline in CD sales, and now paid downloads, musicians are going to earn even less for their music.   A recent report {The Streaming Effect, Accessing The Impact of Streaming Music Behaviour - Mark Mulligan) claims that by the end of 2014 37million people worldwide will be paying for streaming whilst 210 million will be listening for free on ad supported services.
