Music Distribution

Distribution is the way that recorded music gets into the hands of consumers. Traditionally, distribution companies sign deals with record labels which give them the right to sell that label's products. The distributor takes a cut of income from each unit sold and then pays the label the remaining balance. Today, distribution is more fluid and involves releasing music both physically and digitally.
