Authorized Music Services

Visit whymusicmatters.com, developed by the RIAA and the Music Biz Association, as a resource for music fans about the many authorized digital music models and services in today’s marketplace.

Today there are some 43 million songs available across more than 70 authorized services in the United States, and growing.  We can appreciate that with so many options for accessing music online also come questions about which services are legitimate and what kinds of functionality they offer.  That’s why we developed whymusicmatters.com.
