Streaming is good for established music, but not for new releases.
Tony Miranda's curator insight, October 11, 2013 9:30 PM

I thought this article was interesting.  I do somewhat agree that the fact artists do not get paid enough through Spotify with the amount of streams being played from a musician stand point. But streaming is the way of the future, and once other companies start utilizing and creating better streaming services then the artists can be getting paid justly for their work.

"We're 100% committed to making Spotify the most artist-friendly music service"

Josh Jenkins's insight:

Spotify is defending their criticism claiming that their goal is to make a music freindly enviorment where fans can connect with the artist. They also mention that they discuss with artist how they can help their careers and sales.

 

 

However, Godrich criticizes them saying the Spotify was not paying new artists a fair amount. He says that the industry is being taken over by backdoors, and that spotify only benefits superstars with 10 years of EMI investment not the new artists.

Union launches bid for higher royalties for its 30,000 members following Spotify boycott by Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke

Via midem
Josh Jenkins's insight:

Britains biggest musician union is becoming angry at Spotify claiming that for how much they charge their customers and for how much music they get musicians do not get paid enough. In response they launched a bid for higher royalties.

 

Again although Spotify makes it easy for people to stream their favorite music, it cheats the new artsits in the sense that they get little bit of nothing from the streams.
