        The Evolution of Music Distribution | Hitmakers

        Learn about the evolution of music distribution in this clip from Hitmakers. From its origins in a furniture store to subscription streaming services, the music distribution industry has undergone many startling changes. Listeners today don't care as much about owning music, they just want to be able to listen any time, anywhere. Find out how Napster disrupted the music industry in 1999, by allowing music to be shared online, and learn why that made record labels angry. Streaming music through services like Spotify is popular today, but some artists still argue it does not compensate them fairly.
