Since its arrival on the scene music streaming has caused a huge stir, but there's no denying that the likes of Spotify, Apple Music, Dezzer et al are likely to be with us for a while.

The Music Managers' Forum have recently raised the issue that many artists, bands and their management and representatives are kept in the dark about why they receive such a small percentage of earnings per stream.
