Alessandro Marquez's curator insight, October 12, 2013 2:43 PM
The matter of the fact is, online music streaming services, such as Spotify and many others, doesn’t pay artist as fairly. Though, it may be a harsh reality, on the bright side, their music is being heard, and on the other side of things, artist are gaining new fans and new opportunities because of these new online music streaming services, because their music is simply but a click away, and anyone with internet access has the ability to listen to it. There’s still a grey area in all of this, but most importantly, their music is being heard, and there’s plenty of other sources for artist to make profit off of. But, artist should appreciate the fact that there music is being heard, because your fans are priceless.
Bianca Brown's curator insight, October 13, 2013 5:46 PM

Spotify is good for letting the music industry for selling and listening numbers , instead of looking for social media webistes like facebook and/or twitter. Some artists do not have any knowledge about selling their music and knowing if it is good are not the billboard. Spotify can make you or break you for sells but sometimes this website maybe for availablity.

travis eskridge's curator insight, October 13, 2013 8:37 PM

the article talks about how succesful downloadable sites have become and how they play an important roll in the industry sites like napster and spotify.

Pros:you could receive revenue from this as artist everytime your music is downloaded.

Cons: if your and indie artist you wouldnt be able to live off of downloads and it would make it hard to have a stable career.

Cameron Dorrah's curator insight, June 14, 2015 9:19 PM

I dont agree with this article completely. Artists are getting paid less money than they deserve because of spotify. Piracy has gone down but it shouldn't exist at all in my opinion

Rachel Crosley's curator insight, October 11, 2015 1:14 AM

I think this is interesting because it explains why music piracy has gone down since the launch of Spotify and why artists are embracing Spotify even though they aren't getting much money for the streams.

William Reilly's curator insight, December 6, 2015 5:38 PM

It is interesting to see that piracy itself has gone down, but you have to wonder what kind of overall impact this has on the business of music overall. The fact that artists who embrace Spotify see even lower levels of piracy makes it seem like a huge step up from normal, but what kind of rights and profit will Spotify take away?

I personally am a big fan of Spotify, and I think it's great that they've removed time limits. However it's not totally relevant to me since I've never had time restrictions on my account.
Joanne Castillo's curator insight, January 19, 2014 1:54 PM

As a consumer, I feel that it is great that there are no more time limits for Spotify.  I prefer Spotify over Pandora because of the sound quality; however, I still use Pandora because of the unlimited time limit.

Here, in this article it explains how the spotify app has tools that people can use to judge music. It lets you share music, discover new music and subscribe for other music purposes. The spotify app is free for consumption to our digital era.

Luis Gomez's curator insight, December 6, 2014 11:27 PM

This article shows how influential can be a streaming service such as Spotify in the sharing process of a song, and how the company encourage people by providing the public playlists option.

I definitely think that spotify is a good way to promote material because people can share it easily to their friends, and it can become viral 

Kikuchi Asaka's curator insight, September 13, 2015 11:31 PM

Accordance with this article, music platforms such as Spotify, Pandra, and Jango are mixing up the ways of enjoying music, which also makes it harder to predict which song is going to be a hit. When it comes to listening to music, people are shifting to use these free digital media but do not purchase physical things like CDs and vinyl. The article mentions the example of hit songs in New Zealand, and a female singer became super popular within two weeks after she released her songs in Spotify. This is the most interesting part of this new way of marketing in music business and I thnk I have to keep track of these new types of media.
