Increasing the returns in the case of success may be counter productive for helping new artistic careers. Most artistic markets operate in the framework of an overwhelming machinery of promotion and advertising. Incentives to invest in the promotion of the superstars rise as the prospects of superstars' revenues improve (as caused by modifications in the regulation of copyrights or the size of global markets). In this environment, the expected discounted return of a young artist' career may be reduced as a result of a positive shock to superstars' revenues. As a consequence, larger high-type artists' revenues may result in the long run in fewer numbers of artists, and therefore, less high-quality artistic creation.
