Vivendi-acquired today announced that it is going to change the rates it pays for its artists -- to lower ones, of course. While participating to's "Payback for playback" scheme continues to cost $20 a month, the rates the company pays back are being reduced. In new rates, artist gets half a cent ($0.005) for each downloaded song. End of period. No payments for streaming, etc. So, in other words -- if you want to participate, you better get that 4,000 downloads a month or otherwise you lose money.
