It’s long been the accusation lobbed at Spotify, Rdio, Mog and the streaming services: Users have no reason to buy music, thanks to 24/7 access to all-you-can-eat streaming of their 10 to 20 million-song catalogues. Oh, and artists don’t get paid enough either.
Never mind that access, not ownership is the way media consumption has been moving for the last 5 years. (Thanks, Netflix, for pioneering that.)
