I am curious if the artists recieve royalties for many of the discount dvd purchase places out there. I.E. the many discount websites out there like deepdiscount or columbia house. I am also curious about places like blockbuster that resell used copies. Those arent the only places i know, but in general when do/ don't artists recieve roayalties for their discs being sold (other than obvious things like ebay). also i am somwhat curious about wheter royalies of any sort are recived on a per movie rented type of basis from the major vido rental chains. I am just curious because i am beggining to beef up my collection and for some titles (especially independent or small budget type films, it would be nice to make sure the artist is going to get something for my purchase if im going to be spending money.
