New portals for indie developers are opening all over the place.

One of my friends (fellow SCAD student) just got on the iTunes store and he’s by no means a professional musician. Just an amateur hobbyist who decided to apply.

But hey, Wal-mart still works for your example… ;)

Wal-Mart is right out, sure.
But I’ve found myself surprised before by indie-artists I’ve found on the iTunes store before.
Although, thinking about it, in both cases both artists invented their own label which sells nothing but their own music so… maybe that’s good enough for iTunes.
In any case I still personally count that as an individual artist…
