According to a report over at Bloomberg, YouTube is planning a music subscription service for launch in march, 2018.

The new service, internally referred to as Remix, would include Spotify-like on-demand streaming and would incorporate elements from YouTube, such as video clips, the people said.

Google search U2's manager and I believe the quote was, "YouTube is the devil". That said in regards to "do the artists/creators" get a cut. Do a quick search and it's pretty easy to see the picture. Like Nike and others, you can't afford to pay the laborers (creators in this case) a fair shake because it ultimately limits profitability. The music industry isn't happy with Google and YouTube but I gather a lot of people don't know about it. As Google says, the artists that have no record contract/label get all the profits from ads. How lovely. Is there 10 artists on the planet who fit that description? Who can learn and play music while they attempt the YouTube lottery without any marketing? A record label gives contracts so musicians can do what they do. Again, the theme is at some point, the creators will stick it to places like Spotify and YouTube that disregard "fair share". Google blames the record label contracts. LOL.

They've got to recover the esculated fees paid to the ISPs brought on by the removal of Net Neutrality.

That hasn't happened yet (but might on Dec 14th), but recover fees for what? Content theft/conversion?

Why would somebody pay for something he gets for free?
