In 2014, revenue from streaming services outpaced CD sales for the first time, according to RIAA. Billboard also recently changed its chart system to include streams.

Music streamers like Spotify, Pandora, and YouTube contributed 33 percent of total recorded music revenues in the first half of 2015, according to the report by RIAA. With this change in revenue, are  sales and payments to artists, both independent and those signed to a major label affected.

Lisa interviews Tanya Bridges, a veteran music lawyer who specializes in digital performance revenues and licensing to explain how we got here and what this means to an artists bottom line today.
