Interesting Article on the Landscape for Musicians in the Digital World

As musicians, we've been told constantly how digital music is better for musicians in the end.  But is this really true?  The Trichordist recently ran this article (from a multi-part series) about just this topic and shows many musicians are still being exploited as before with very little of your dollar actually reaching them.  An interesting, if depressing, read.  What do you think?

Yet another look into why for every improvement that comes about in technology, another thing comes about that takes away from the financial end of things for the creator.

I can't imagine there are too many independent recording artists that don't have day jobs just to supplement the lack of income from missed CD/download sales.
