"The U.S.-based giant has teamed up with French app Deezer to launch an "artist-centric" approach that will give more money to professional musicians at the expense of non-music streams."

Deezer, a small streaming service, has a new deal with a music publisher, Universal, which represents songwriters (not artists). How does this give more money to professional musicians?

Sony/ATV owns the Beatles publishing catalog, not Universal, which has their master rights. I assume this is a Deezer press release trying to spin a non-story.

After reading this article, I still have no idea how artists are going to get more money.
