    ◎索尼音樂已經正式開始將其把所持有的Spotify股票的50%售出後所獲得的7.5億美元利潤分給其藝人和發行廠牌。

    ◎根據Variety的報導,金額的支付將基於過去10年的收益,也就是索尼對Spotify進行初始投資以來的期間,根據個別藝人和廠牌的合約條款進行分配,並且把這段期間內索尼自己的收入從Spotify的股票收益中分開來計算。

    ◎索尼也證實,他們不會將這筆資金算進還未支付給藝人和唱片公司的收入中。這筆由索尼音樂執行長Rob Stringer帶頭的獎金適用於索尼在全球的所有藝人、製作人和唱片公司。

    詳細全文:

    Sony Music has officially begun to distribute the $750 million in profit it collected from the sale of 50% of its Spotify shares to its artists and distributed labels.

    According to Variety, the disbursement will be based on earnings over the last 10 years (i.e. since Sony's initial investment in the Swedish streaming service), allocated according to individual artist and label contract terms, and divisible against Sony's own revenues from the Spotify stock gain for that time period.

    So, what does this mean for artists who generally make a fraction of a cent on streaming? Apparently, that the checks have been mailed out and that they can expect to see a little money in the bank by the end of the month. Sony has also confirmed that they will not count the funds against the artists' and label's unrecouped earnings.

    The payout, which was spearheaded by Sony Music CEO Rob Stringer, applies to all Sony-affiliated artists, producers, featured guests, and labels globally.
