Charts: How Spotify is killing music piracy

Charts: How Spotify is killing music piracy | Music Piracy | 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.
Lex Lopez's insight:

Spotify keeps music listeners from downloading the music illegally because they can stream the songs online at anytime.

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?

Isaiah Muller's curator insight, February 17, 2017 7:34 PM

Spotify in my mind isn't really on my piracy list. yes you can listen to free music, but you can also pay a small fee to get as much music as you want. In 2010 in the Netherlands, Spotify was introduced and from 2010 to 2011 the rate of piracy actually dropped 10% even though we will see if Spotify can do something to fight it everywhere rather than just being able to afford it.

I think its conducive to create platforms like Spotify in order to reduce music piracy.

The source I find valid because all sources are labeled within grafts.

I find it a valid resource for audio industry professionals because it is interesting to know where music sales productivity is going to in current times.

The Online Piracy Act may help businesses make more money, but it also may make people only do things for the money, and not for the love of what they do.

This topic can open a broad discussion to how we should act towards piracy and how we will determine when is it considered wrong. Most artists claim that music piracy is decreasing their profits but some of them use it as a marketing tool to gain followers and get money from their live performances. There are people who support and others who go against piracy but there has to be a stablished limit to keep artists from not getting what they deserve for their work.

Visual representation is scary to me because I'm going into the industry and I don't want to end up as a hobo.
