Apple iTunes Raises Wholesale Royalty to Independent Artists

Derek Sivers from CD Baby has magnanimously shared some good news in a mass email to his clients and on a recent Pho post..."Apple iTunes USA just raised their wholesale payout to $.70 cents per download", even though song pricing remains at $.99 cents each...Artists signed on with CD Baby's Digital Distribution who are available on iTunes can now make $.63 cents per song - which is incredibly generous when compared to other distribution methods...Also, For the iTunes music stores that are outside the U.S., the recent payout averages are: iTunes Europe: $.88 cents, iTunes UK: $.88 cents and iTunes Canada: $.62 cents...In addition, when iTunes launches in Japan and Australia soon, CD Baby's digital catalog will reportedly be in both. (Of course, just being available "for sale" in cyberspace isn't enough...Copyright holders need to develop and refine methods to drive traffic to the sites to generate sales.)

When I was in my late teens a friend of mine, an elite athlete, gave me the most profound yet simple advice that changed the way I would view myself forever. He told me "You yourself have to think you're great because no one else is going to tell you that you are."

The North Face Jackets came from North Face Canada which do a better job for keeping you both warm and dry. The cotton and wool can attract damp. The cotton next to your skin so that it can absorb your sweat, it also leave you feeling chilled and damp. The top quality synthetic fabric of the North Face Mens Jackets is designed to wick moisture away from your skin and encourage the moisture to travel to the next layer. This is what is known as "breathing". The fabric allows the moisture generated by sweat and exercise to pass through the fabric, and the fabric doesn't trap the moisture and become damp. A natural fabric such as cotton doesn't do this satisfactorily, and will get damp over a period of time. Now that the North Face Down Jackets Womens Sale on our online shop, all are cheap and high quality, you will like it.
