The recurring fee caught my eye, too, although as these services come on-line, market forces will eventually determine which fee structure works. It’s hard for me to say if this recurring model is a problem or a logical way to handle it at this early stage.

By contrast, I was unhappy with the artificial one year statute of limitations on suits among the terms and conditions. Articially short statutes of limitations always seem to me to be unfortunate.

Still, it’s easy to dwell upon the negative when the positive is so interesting. I think it’s really cool that a self-releasing artist can now easily click through to an album release among most of the “usual suspects”. I think this is a creative approach, and I hope it succeeds.
