Nick Beasley's curator insight, October 12, 2014 5:52 PM

This is a very reliable source. The article discusses how the artists aren't being fairly compensated when their music is being streamed on music streaming sites. The record labels and the streaming websites are getting the majority of the revenue. I don't feel this is right. Record labels tend to profit more off of artists music than the artists do, and that goes for any avenue for getting music out their. Whether that avenue is a music streaming site, iTunes, or CD sales. Artists just don't make as much off of their music as the label they are under.

Candace Johnson's curator insight, November 4, 2014 10:35 AM

Many artists are rebelling against the idea of music streaming services and people feel that people "owning" music might be obsolete anymore. Music streaming services have changed the game and nature of the recording industry. For example, certain views and plays on Youtube now count towards Billboard rankings. However, these streaming sites have paid for rights and plays often contribute towards royalties that the artists collect upon. Streaming services often feel they are highlighting the underdogs and bringing people out of the darkness and recognizing them.

Dominick Cangialosi's curator insight, November 11, 2015 3:56 PM

Their are 2 really good points in this Article. One says that you SHOULDN'T be paid for them streaming YOUR music. But the other side of that is that you SHOULD get paid for streaming YOUR music. Multiple people have pulled albums because they were not making enough money on these streaming services. "Spotify is now valued at 3$ billion dollars" and none of the artists have ever seen that money.

Spotify, Pandora and radio @ Radiodays Europe 2013 [podcast]

Spotify, Pandora and radio

 A fascinating session, chaired by Francis Currie, looked at the threats and opportunities from the new wave of music streaming services.

 Kicking off the session was Ross Adams, Spotify's European Sales Director giving a whistle-stop tour through the product and telling us they have 24m active users in 20 countries, generating $500 million for record companies. 

He felt that they were more a friend than a foe to the radio industry and that there were many opportunities to work together. In the UK 16 per cent of the Spotify users don't listen to commercial radio and only 10 per cent listen to the public service BBC - this gives a large opportunity for radio to reach new audiences. 

Spotify works with Absolute Radio and, free magazine, Shortlist on combined campaigns. Whilst there's competition for some radio advertising between radio and Spotify, Ross talked about Spotify's route to advertising often being through digital teams rather than radio's radio teams.

The key features Spotify's working on now are: 

Features - particularly discovery and sharingExpansion - into more countriesInnovation - new ways for partners to leverage their music catalogue.


Larry Rosin, from Edison Research, talked about his relationship with US music streaming service, Pandora. In the United States, Pandora accounts for 66 per cent of all streaming (including all US radio output). 42 per cent of Americans have listened to Pandora, 27 per cent have listened in the last month, and 20 per cent tune in to Pandora every week - a huge amount of reach.

Edison developed some research to map Pandora's consumption onto existing listening metrics. This produced figures showing Pandora was the number one station for 18 to 34s in the top five biggest US radio markets. Larry then talked about the negative feedback he received from US radio groups - he felt they clearly saw it as a problem and wanted to do whatever they could to try and discredit the operation. What he felt they should have been doing is developing their own new properties to deliver new types of radio to listeners.

Radio consultant Denis Florent from Radioformat built on Larry's position explaining that new music services were combining smart algorithms, and providing both a social layer as well as mobile ubiquity - something that radio's been historically good at. To win against them he felt it was important to combine filters, our skill at prescribing and brand value to deliver greater benefit over (and sometimes through) these services.

YouTube to launch music streaming service, take on Spotify - Fortune Tech

YouTube to launch music streaming service, take on Spotify - Fortune Tech | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Exclusive: Google is planning to roll out a music streaming service to capitalize on the power of YouTube...

 

Sources in the record industry told Fortune that it is not yet clear if a subscription-based model is more lucrative (and therefore preferable) to an ad-subsidized approach. Free nets more customers, but the subscription model has consumers actively paying for music -- a good thing, if you're in the music business, which just posted its first year-on-year increase in sales in thirteen years....

 

Google is entering an already crowded field: Spotify, Pandora (P), Rdio, Soundcloud, and Muve Music all offer customers similar access to large online music libraries. Apple is rumored to be building a "radio" feature in its iTunes program that would deliver streaming music based upon a user's tastes -- a service something like Pandora -- that further merges the experience of being in a "store" to purchase music, and then listening to it in a "player."

 

They're all fighting over a still small pie. U.S. consumers have been fairly slow to join -- and stick with -- subscription music services. The most popular, Muve Music, has just 1.4 million customers. (Spotify is close behind, with about 1 million.) Its success is in large part due to the fact that it bundles its price into a cellphone bill, as if it were a cable operator charging for an MTV/VH1 package. The mobile carrier that owns Muve, Cricket, is then able to sell subscriptions at less than $5 a month, far lower rates than Spotify, which generally costs about twice that much.

 

Soundcloud, a free music streaming site that is user-curated and is, in many ways, similar in spirit and practice to YouTube, has recently begun partnering with major artists and large companies, such as Snoop Lion (nee, Dog) and Red Bull. Soundcloud boasts that it is the fastest growing music streaming site, with its users uploading about 10 hours of content a minute. In 2010, YouTube users uploaded 35 hours of content per minute; in 2011, they posted 48 hours per minute; as of last May, it was up to 72 hours a minute. It's not all music, but a lot is.

Ford drives Ford SYNC into Europe with Spotify partnership

Ford drives Ford SYNC into Europe with Spotify partnership | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

A global partnership with Spotify, announced today at Mobile World Congress, heralds a major push into Europe for Ford SYNC, the voice-activated in-car connectivity system, and Ford SYNC AppLink, which enables customers to control smartphone apps safely from the driver’s seat.

Paul Mascarenas, Ford chief technical officer and vice president, research and innovation said that Ford SYNC will feature in 3.5 million Ford vehicles in Europe by 2015.  Helping the company reach this target will be the all-new European version of the EcoSport. Unveiled at Congress, the Ford EcoSport is one of the first Ford vehicles in Europe to offer Ford SYNC AppLink.

The integration of the music streaming service with Ford SYNC AppLink-equipped vehicles in both Europe and North America marks Spotify’s first direct collaboration with an automotive manufacturer. With 20 million users and five million paying subscribers, Spotify is currently available in 17 European countries, the USA, Australia and New Zealand.

Pascal de Mul, global head of hardware partnerships, Spotify, said that AppLink will enable drivers to access Spotify songs and playlists using voice commands including: “shuffle”, “repeat”, “star/unstar track”, “choose playlist”, “play music”, “recently played”, and “now playing”.

Ford also announced that it is working with three partners on European-tailored versions of AppLink apps previously launched in the US. Kaliki Audio Newsstand provides audible playback of newspaper and magazine articles; Glympse allows Ford drivers to share their location and estimated time of arrival with friends and family; Aha uses the cloud to safely enable internet-based entertainment and information allowing drivers to search for infotainment such as social media feeds, places to eat or stay and weather.

How Spotify Changed Music

How Spotify Changed Music | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Guest post by Kyle Bylin of sidewinder.fm, a music and tech think tank.

 

As Spotify moves from the fringes of the tech crowd to the mainstream market, it’s worth reflecting on how the online music service has changed the way many of us listen to music.

Not long ago, we went to great lengths to seek out and purchase albums for our collections. Now, we simply search for an artist on Spotify and add their entire discography to our library. With a single click, we can listen to their songs and not have to wait for a video to buffer or a download to complete. Rather than collect our favorite songs with diligent care, we capture them using the “Like” button with pure ease.

More on the Spotify debate. 

Joey Glick's curator insight, August 16, 2015 2:53 PM

Spotify, and many other streaming websites, may not always be in the best interest of music artists.  We have already seen multiple artists take their songs off of these sites.  We also have to remember that these are completely legal sites and that they always go under the consent of those working on these songs, and that those on these sites have full rights to remove music whenever they please.

Spotify's Chief Content Officer: playlist searching 'could use a lot of improvement'

Spotify's Chief Content Officer: playlist searching 'could use a lot of improvement' | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
Spotify's Chief Content Officer Ken Parks stopped off in Boston today for a quick appearance at the Berklee College of Music's Rethink Music conference to answer questions from an audience full of music professionals and students. We had the opportunity to ask Parks if Spotify plans to improve search-ability of its playlist system, noting that Spotify's search capabilities are rather limited in terms of letting users find playlists created by users who aren't directly in your social circle. Parks responded definitively: "the short answer is yes, and I agree that is something that could use a lot of improvement." While he didn't say when we might see these improvements, it seems that Spotify definitely recognizes this need, as Parks reiterated "we plan to make that much better, it has to be."
