How can artists survive?  What do you think about copyright?

 The pandemic has upended the art and business of making music. Producing, performing and releasing — every aspect is new and uncharted. The need for social distancing means that it’s unsafe to collaborate in small studios or perform for large crowds — not to mention finding the right thing to sing about in such a charged moment. We’re telling three stories about how artists are working within these constraints: Ricky Reed and John-Robert have found a way to generate a creative spark remotely, Jacob Collier has defied the laws of physics to master live performance over the internet, and Dua Saleh has released a powerful new track that helps support the protests in Minneapolis. Everything is radically different than it was a few months ago, but these stories shine a light on why making music matters more than ever in 2020.

  Rick and copyright

What does it mean when you receive a copyright strike? Can i be fixed? Is is bad?

How do we talk about music when we can't show or play it? How can an artist be compensated for creative property?

As someone with a youtube channel this was very interesting to learn and important to understand

It is important when educating about music to be able to play music and demonstrate the topics you are teaching. I cannot imagine how frustrating it is for hardworking youtubers like Rick Beato or Adam Neely who try to educate musicians, but might not be able to make any money from it.

It was suprising for me to hear that Youtubers cannot use copyrighted music (in a manner that I'd consider to be fair use) without risking their channels being taken down. A lot of these Youtubers dedicate a ton of time and money to their channels, and for Youtube to demonitize and block these videos seems unfair.

When I watched this podcast, I was just so annoyed because I think it isn't fair just copyright something that is being used for educational purposes.  I feel like youtube has to make their copyright rules a bit better.
