payola vs advertising

Question: how is payola for inclusion in a webcast different than any other in-stream ad?

Some potential answers:

  • A full song is longer than a 30 second ad spot, so the rate should be quite a lot higher.
  • It’s a beautifully targeted bit of marketing.
  • It’s stealthy and deceptive if the payola is a secret.
