... so now Apple takes 100% of the risk in this new adventure instead of the artists sharing (very little) in the risk... Even though both would profit in the long run if AM takes off. This looks like the music industry is betting on AM failing.

I wonder how much control the Kremlin maintains over Kaspersky Labs? Most likely -total- control. Remember... "Putin is the new Stalin"!

These artists are nuts! They are worried about loosing 3 months of royalties?

Apple simply evaluated it's partnership with Monster (including the legal action) and said it's not worth it! buh-bye!
Good for Apple, don't be associated with the likes of Monster.
