Prince has the right idea.
This is exactly where I think the future of making money in the music industry is going. I've been thinking for some time now how new artists are going to make money doing music. With CD sales dwindling, there has to be better way. A way that harnesses the power and speed of the internet. I think this model by Prince is certainly heading in the right direction. I wonder if he'll ask me to take it down?
After a year of diligently working to scrub the Internet of all unauthorized related music, photos, video and any other content not offered directly by him, Prince has launched a fan subscription service called Lotusflow3r.com (http://www.lotusflow3r.com/).
