worth noting that they also tend to have strict guidelines on what actually counts as a "stream"

If I buy a physical record, they don't get any money each time I play it, why would it be different with streaming? Why would leftists approve of musicians' rent-seeking behaviour?

this
the main point of streaming from the point of view of capitalists isn't even ad revenue, it's just making music easily available so that statistically more people will be more likely to buy physical

Lmao what an ignorant post. Implying datamining is useless in fucking 2022.

>so that statistically more people will be more likely to buy physical

You're seriously suggesting enough people buy physical these days that it's more profitable than datamining the preferences and metadata of billions of people. What a joke.

even back then, bootlegging still existed as a functional pre-cursor to the internet

And some bands were pretty based about it:
> Throughout their career, the Grateful Dead were known to tolerate taping of the live shows. There was a demand from fans to hear the improvisations that resulted from each show, and taping appealed to the band's general community ethos.[66] They were unique among bands in that their live shows tended not to be pressed and packaged as LPs, but remained in tape form to be shared between tapers.[67] The group were strongly opposed to commercial bootlegging and policed stores that sold them, while the saturation of tapes among fans suppressed any demand for product.[68] In 1985, the Grateful Dead, after years of tolerance, officially endorsed live taping of their shows, and set up dedicated areas that they believed gave the best sound recording quality.[69]
