That's reductive. While the "get paid" credo that came with the dominance of hip hop in the 90s and made it acceptable in the mainstream to do this kind of thing, piracy of recorded music went off the charts in the digital age to the point where artists gradually make less and less off their studio output and have to rely more and more on touring, merchandising, and yes, licensing.

It's just a different world now.

From what I understand, Tom Petty didn't really have much set up in terms of his estate. After he died, his 2 daughter have been at war with his wife (not their mother) about a bunch of things regarding his estate, legacy, and the future of his music. Because of this, a lot of other older artists are selling off the rights to their music, preferring their heirs to just inherit a sum of money, rather than have them fight over what to do with everything. Bob Dylan recently made a similar deal. Motley Crue have also recently sold their catalog to BMG, so now they'll be providing the soundtrack to many a strip club.

U2 will probably do this someday soon.

Given the multitudes of U2 children and the 4-way democracy, it probably would be the best way to preserve family relationships.

Listen to this place… so entrenched in the thought of the machine that y’all are planning the band’s death.

Bruce's bloodline was already set for the next several generations. Maybe none of them wanted to manage his catalog, but they could just hire someone. The Bowie estate has someone handling the catalig. Corporations have proven themselves to be terrible stewards of the art they own and it's very unfortunate that so many extremely rich artists are selling their life's work to institutions that don't care about it. I see these moves as representations of extreme greed more than anything else. The only thing the super rich - and Bruce is certainly super rich - want is MORE. It's unfortunate to see people like Bruce resort to turning tricks when they could afford to buy a small country.

Cool that Bowie has someone managing his catalog, tho.

It’s gotta be true, otherwise this is the most random rumor ever. I’ve still never seen Man On A Train, but I think it’s pretty adorable that the grumpiest U2er likes - of all things - acting.

Bowie’s catalog reissue over the last few years has been pretty magnificent I think.

David Bowie’s estate has reached a deal to sell the music icon’s songwriting catalog to Warner Chappell in one of the largest music publishing deals to date.

According to a press release from Warner Chappell, “the agreement comprises songs from the 26 David Bowie studio albums released during his lifetime, as well as the posthumous studio album release, Toy. It also includes the two studio albums from Tin Machine alongside tracks released as singles from soundtracks and other projects.”

The company did not divulge financial details, but sources told Variety that the deal, which includes Bowie’s “entire body of work,” was worth more than $250 million. The deal will bring nearly all of the Thin White Duke’s catalog under the Warner umbrella. The newly acquired catalog stretches across 60 years and includes iconic songs like “Heroes,” “Changes,” “Space Oddity,” “Fame,” “Let’s Dance,” “Rebel Rebel,” “Golden Years,” and “Ziggy Stardust.”
