Comment: What's in a name? (Score 4, Funny) 469

New violins don't have cool names like Stradivarius though. That name is so epic, it could make anything look or sound high brow and expensive. Stradivarius Coffee, home of the $75 latte. Stradivarius Bounce House, let your kids bounce around for only $125/hr. Stradivarius Water, Anything less, will dehydrate you, only $49.99 per 8oz bottle made out of the finest Stradivarius plastics. With a name like that, people will pay anything.

Middlemen aside, everyone always seems to forget that you have to price a product at what the customers are willing to pay for it while still making a profit for yourself after paying royalties, salaries, etc.... If the artists feel they aren't getting paid enough through this medium, they need to branch out to other mediums and find other ways to make money on their product. They can't just say "I want X amount of dollars each month or X amount for each play" and expect any sane businessperson to take them seriously without factoring in the costs associated with offering the service.

But if we are going to start suing businesses for poor business decisions and a little bit of lying - hell, there are a LOT of businesses that need suing.

As a business owner, you are correct. Every business lies, we just sugar coat it by calling it "control of information."

A good lawyer will give you an initial consultation for free. I sought out a lawyer for a contract dispute with my business and he gave me the advice I needed for free though I offered to pay. He said it was a simple issue and he hoped I would return to him in the future for something more complex.
