    Default Where do Major Record Labels make their money? (Chart)

    You want to know where major record labels make their money? Here's a nice little graphic breaking it down...


    33% Digital Recordings
    29% Physical Recordings
    25% Digital Streaming
    9% Artist services and expanded rights
    9% Licensing of Recordings
    8% Performance Licensing
    5% Mechanical Licensing
    5% Sync Licensing
    2% Digital (Publishing)

    This was an interesting post on DMN:
    How does a major label make money these days? The answer is, with great difficulty, and they're usually losing a lot of money. Which was the case for Warner Music Group last quarter: according to the company, losses for the period topped $32 million, which is only good when compared to last year's quarterly loss of $46 million.

    Overall, revenues topped $654 million, with digital assuming a greater chunk of the pie. Here's a breakdown of every single dollar earned by Warner Music over the past three months (the painfully-detailed filing is here).

    Updated: Warner Music now says 25 percent of its digital recording revenue comes from streaming, per All Things D.

    Now this is a very nice info graphic. The easiest structure of money that you can make I believe is residual money. Why? Because you don't have to question when your next check comes.
