Charts: How Spotify is killing music piracy

Charts: How Spotify is killing music piracy | Spotify & The Effect on the Music Industry | Scoop.it
Music piracy has gone down significantly in the Netherlands since the launch of Spotify in that country. What’s more, artists who embrace Spotify see lower levels of piracy.

Brandon Kennedy's insight:

This sight has good credibility because they use active factual websites as their sources to provide background on their topic.  For this site especially they used statistics in the netherlands where spotify began its business.

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?

The war between music labels and online services is a little bloody. Here's why and how it might finally end.
Brandon Kennedy's insight:

This site is explaining that online streaming of music has deystroyed the way music business should be done. I personally dislike pandora or spotify and any other streaming websites because it is a way for fans to cheat out their favorite artists of the royalties they would get if they purchased the album.

Spotify: The Future of the Music Industry (?)

Spotify: The Future of the Music Industry (?) | Spotify & The Effect on the Music Industry | Scoop.it
Coming from an avid music fan it may seem bias to say that Spotify is one of the greatest things to ever happen to music, but it’s true.
Brandon Kennedy's insight:

Personally I think it will be the future but in the end it will hurt the music industry to where it might not recover because you are cheating artists out of their royalties and allow fans to get their music for like $10 a month, instead of the $14 for each album

The music industry has had a rough patch for over a decade now.Since Napster musicians and record labels have only seen their profits decline.
Brandon Kennedy's insight:

This is the example that I agree with completely because the profits of labels and thus studios have declined over the last decade and this will cause problems even if people think it is helping I can tell you confidently it will not

Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich caused quite a stir last week by pulling their music off Spotify, demanding that the service pay more to up-and-coming musicians. The thing is, however, that Spotify is...
Brandon Kennedy's insight:

These artists are taking their music off spotify because they don't feel compinsated fairly for their work and I feel other artists are going to follow for the sake of the industry.

This is a more positive side to Spotify. This article talks about how since Spotify started, the music industry has made a small rise of .03%, not rising, since 1999. It also discusses the fact that Spotify allows people to purchase music in any form that they choose.
