Gracenote

I noticed Gracenote is coming soon and they added Omniphone. From what I can tell these services help ID your music and help with internet search's etc. I am wondering if I choose these, will it add more overhead so I'm getting less total "net" or will they only collect money from streams or downloads that they directly generate? If I don't choose them am I paying for it anyway?  Thanks

Hey Steve, 

These ID services will add more to your overall revenues, because instead of someone using one of these services in public and not knowing the artist, they will now know its you and hopefully listen more or purchase. 

In terms of revenues it will remain unchanged as these services get their revenues taken out of store percentages, eg. out of the iTunes share.
