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?
