Daniel Ek Expects Spotify To Pay Out $500 Million To Rights Holders in 2013

Daniel Ek Expects Spotify To Pay Out $500 Million To Rights Holders in 2013 | Musician as businessman | Scoop.it

Spotify chief executive and co-founder Daniel Ek dropped a startling statistic at Los Angeles’ Innovation Forum event on Tuesday: that his freemium music service is on track to pay out $500 million to music copyright holders over the course of this year. That’s a big number — and it also happens to be equivalent to what Spotify has paid out in every other year combined, according to Ek (Spotify launched in October 2008, only in Sweden, and now reaches over 17 countriesincluding the United States, which is the world’s biggest music market).

This is one reason I think people who complain about Spotify payouts might be a little premature (although certainly, if someone only listens to your stuff once, it doesn’t pay out much).

This $500 million payout is also about one sixth of Spotify’s total valuation, most recently reported to be $3 billion. Spotify now has approximately as many songs as users — over 20 million of each — with about a quarter of those paying for a subscription.

Streaming Shakes Up Music Industry’s Model for Royalties

Streaming Shakes Up Music Industry’s Model for Royalties | Musician as businessman | Scoop.it
Companies like Spotify and Pandora are catching fire, but the money paid to artists is often tiny, which has the music industry on edge.
Eric St-Pierre's insight:

Rien de nouveau, toujours intéressant par contre de voir que les artistes ne sont pas satisfait. J'ai l'impression qu'il y a un immense changement de mentalitéé sur le statut d'emploi d'un musicien / artite. L'industrie doit faire un trait sur les vieux modèle de revenu et se concentrer sur une nouvelle aire où les bands ne sont plus les rois de ce monde.

Hack Your Craft's curator insight, February 27, 2013 8:38 AM

I'm glad someone's making money.:(  Anyway, what was interesting is that pop classic artist like Adele still makes the bulk of her revenue from physical sales. Where as an alternative artis like Goyte makes his money in downloads. Two different marketing cultures  for two different artists. Something to think about for the independent when ordering up your next shipment of CDs.

Fred Wilson, co-founder of the venture capital firm Union Square Ventures (which has invested in Twitter, Tumblr, Foursquare, and Zynga), predicts that once it gets up and running, the equity crowdfunding market will reach $300 billion and will be largely driven by families and individuals investing a small percentage of their assets via crowdfunding. As a point of comparison, a study from Crowdsourcing.org reports that about $1.5 billion was raised from 452 crowdfunding platforms in 2011.
