Viewing Nightcore from that angle makes it seem like a cheap ripoff and totally not something that should be in any way encouraged.
But when you look at it from another point of view, as simply enjoying the same song/genre in a slightly different way, then it becomes a lot more acceptable. A song can sound good and be promoted at multiple speeds and that's okay. I think the general public is finally starting to understand this, enough so that it might become commercially profitable.
This has of course always been true, people just haven't realized it. The "DJ Splash Speed Mix" of Flying High was enormously popular, and it's Nightcore pretty much, with the only difference being that the speedup was by Splash himself and not someone else. And of course the name.

I guess i can answer that question, i am the artist behind nightcores tracks: Paradise, Lucid and Clouds. The nightcore artist uses my music in a faster, high pitched way, and the money gets split up 50/50.
