Submission + - How much is Spotify paying independent artists?->

Damon Tog writes: David Harrell, of 'The Layaways,' reveals the following:

"For August and September of 2009, we received per-stream payouts of .02 cents, .03 cents, .06 cents, and — my favorite — an amount so small that it apparently rounds to .000000 cents!"

"At the .022 cent rate... it would require 3,500 Spotify plays to generate the same payout as that from a 99-cent iTunes download."
