    a piece

    Does "a piece" in the following mean "some profit" in the context?

    Given his outsider status, there was immediate opposition, especially to selling songs individually for 99 cents each. (Of course, Apple would get a piece of each sale.)

    Thank you.

    Yes - a percentage of the sale price.
