Make more money from iTunes Match & iTunes Radio

When your music is in the iTunes store and your music is "matched" by a customer (ie: Streamed or downloaded from a user's iPhone, iPad, etc.) or played via iTunes Radio, you receive a per-play royalty. So you can continue making money even after your music has been purchased by your fans.
