John Seabrook, writing for The New Yorker.
Typically, under terms that the record labels worked out with the streaming services (and somehow persuaded the federal rate courts to sign off on), when a song is streamed, sixty per cent of the income goes to the owners of the sound recording, thirty per cent goes to the service itself, and ten per cent goes to songwriters and publishers. When a song is streamed on an Internet radio site—Pandora is by far the largest—the holders of publishing copyrights receive a thousandth of a cent per stream.

Vanna were burglarized recently in Atlanta. The band subsequently set up a Gofundme account for fans, to help recoup some of their lost possessions. The campaign has raised over 11,000 dollars so far. That's fine. That happens. But apparently, the next day, members of the band posted pictures of themselves gambling. Understandably, it made a lot of fans mad. A classic case of "Donor Beware," it seems. A pic of the incident is in the replies.
