I’ve maintained a personal library of music files ever since I’ve owned a computer. For the last several years, though, I’ve been using streaming services to listen to music simply because it was easier. As a professional musician, I was happy that the artists received a little extra support from me. I had purchased a lot of the albums I was listening to, so they got their cut from that, but they were also receiving a cut when I streamed their work. It was a win-win for everyone involved.
