There's a lot of talk about how Apple is building a whiz-bang, streaming Internet radio app to kill Pandora. In 2013, Internet radio seems really shortsighted for Apple. It can't possibly be the only thing they're up to in the music space.

Daniel Ek Expects Spotify To Pay Out $500 Million To Rights Holders in 2013

Daniel Ek Expects Spotify To Pay Out $500 Million To Rights Holders in 2013 | independent musician resources | Scoop.it

Spotify chief executive and co-founder Daniel Ek dropped a startling statistic at Los Angeles’ Innovation Forum event on Tuesday: that his freemium music service is on track to pay out $500 million to music copyright holders over the course of this year. That’s a big number — and it also happens to be equivalent to what Spotify has paid out in every other year combined, according to Ek (Spotify launched in October 2008, only in Sweden, and now reaches over 17 countriesincluding the United States, which is the world’s biggest music market).

This is one reason I think people who complain about Spotify payouts might be a little premature (although certainly, if someone only listens to your stuff once, it doesn’t pay out much).

This $500 million payout is also about one sixth of Spotify’s total valuation, most recently reported to be $3 billion. Spotify now has approximately as many songs as users — over 20 million of each — with about a quarter of those paying for a subscription.
