Industry blog Digital Audio Insider has been tracking the payout rates from eMusic, and shows that they rose sharply in the fourth quarter of last year. In Q1, labels received 30.5 cents per download, but that rose to 33.4 cents in Q2 and then 34.2 cents in Q3 – although the latter rise was criticised at the time for being too small, despite eMusic jacking up its subscription prices. However, in Q4, the payout rate was 39 cents. It’s still some way behind the 70-cents paid out for iTunes downloads, but the blog expects eMusic’s rates to continue to rise in the coming months.
