Teresa Montagano's curator insight, September 14, 2014 6:09 PM

Using an online radio gives you the quick option of purchasing the song or album they like right then and there. Artists letting spotify sell their music actually gain rather than lose out on money. 

Katherine Beltran Navarro's curator insight, October 12, 2014 10:15 PM

The article remains to be seen whether Spotify can really fight piracy everywhere, or only in places where people can actually afford to pay for music.

Davey B's curator insight, December 3, 2014 5:39 PM

This source seems credible for the most part except for the domain.

How Netflix Reduces Piracy

How Netflix Reduces Piracy | Music business | Scoop.it

"There has long been three opinions about how to beat piracy; through legislation and enforcement, through better legal services, or both. Although piracy continues to exist as numerous new music services have launched, there’s no doubt consumers have far better options (free-of-charge streaming, DRM-free downloads) than they had just a few years ago."

Scott Crawford Jr.'s curator insight, May 13, 2013 11:04 AM

I like how Netflix is trying to help the problem. Makes me think of Amanda Palmer and her question, "How do we LET people pay for music, not MAKE them."


Piracy doesn't drop just through access to legal entertainment options. Netflix has two things going for it: a very wide reach and a best-of-class service. The company had 36.3 million streaming subscribers at the end of March, an increase of nearly 10 million subscribers in 12 months, and operates in 40 countries. And it is arguably the best streaming service and at $8 per month is the best value on the market. Popularity, quality and value go a long way in beating piracy.


Netflix’s chief content officer says “BitTorrent traffic drops as the Netflix traffic grows”
