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.

Paul Baker's curator insight, July 23, 2017 3:31 PM

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.
