Radio Paying Recording Artists?

Well, kinda. Clear Channel will share ad revenue with a country label in exchange for playing their works (and for the artists agreeing to cap their income from digital stations). So it really only affects a select group of major-label artists, and it's really just a shift of income from one source to another. Think of it as another edition of the 360 artist deals some big artists received a few years ago. There's still no clear legal solution that benefits all recording artists and digital stations. Just some redistribution of income at the higher levels.
