Spotify would lose a lot of users if it were to reduce, or (God-forbid) remove, free streaming. A lot of users I've talked to like Spotify because it is a well-formatting program that allows them to listen to whatever music they want with no strings attached. Spotify has millions of paid subscribers, but it doesn't seem to be concerned for the free users who are listening to their paid advertisements. I think a lot of Spotify users would start using Pandora, Rdio, last.fm, Grooveshark, or other similar services that allow free listening with commercials.

This article comes from zdnet.com, site that covers 24/7 news on emerging trends, analysis, and technology. The article talks about Spotify's plan to cut down free music streaming. Previously, Spotify would let its user stream music for free with advertisements. The company now plans to cut down to 10hrs a month in streaming and limits a user play individual tracks only 5 times over per month. I thought this article was supplemental to my scoop because it demonstrates how companies are shifting consumers to this new sales model.
