This rubbed me the wrong way, I didn't feel it was about the artists, it was about the big businesses making money off the artists.
Personally I would like artists to have more options, the option to go on your own and promote yourself however you want to, or have the big music industry machine promote you.

Artists do have a lot more options online.
YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter let them build their own audiences.
Yep also Soundcloud, and Bandcamp.
Right, so independents seem to be doing just fine.
They have many more channels for distribution than they used to.
Plus there are now many competitions like American Idol and The Voice.
