After contributing to the recovery of the global music industry in the past years, streaming quickly became the dominant means of music consumption worldwide and represents a paramount channel for artists, musicians, record labels and publishers to distribute their music and get in touch with the fan base.
Defining and executing a proper digital distribution strategy represents an important aspect to improve the earning model for a music catalogue nowadays. The recent performance of the Zero Assoluto Catalogue, which is available for trading on ANote Music, represents an interesting case study of the beneficial impacts that streaming can have on a music catalogue performance.
