Seeing as how the future is looking dull for record labels, especially the crappy ones, some record labels have entered into 360 deals with their artists. This basically means that the record label gets money from not only record sales, but merchandise and such forth. The basis for this is falling record sales, I'm guessing. Record labels aren't making back what they put into making the record. I had heard about the 360 deal with big artists like Madonna, but now apparently Paramore has entered into a 360 deal. I'm not quite sure how to feel about it. It's a really interesting trend in the industry, so read the following article and tell me how you feel about it!
