I don't think you understand the amount of money that Google spends making sure that change doesn't happen.
And I don't think you understood my point.
The person in the story you quoted travels to Washington to discuss with congresspeople an obvious and continuing exploitation by the usual suspects - people with a lot of money taking advantage of people with a lot less money. And these artists are told that they're disorganized and not on message. So the plea goes out on social media to ... I suppose get on message so they can go back with a better argument.
Meanwhile, as I said before in the thread, the buying public has definitely been on message that they don't really give a damn about the plight of the artist. So, to me, it's nothing but strange that this kabuki is stuck on repeat when what someone needs to do is figure out a way to wake the public up to get engaged, if possible, because the artists have very little power in this fight unless they do something like strike and/or organize protests to get the media, and hopefully, the public interested. Facebook posts aren't going to get it done.
