The Taylor Swift pulldown is about free versus premium on-demand streaming | Spotify: Is it good for the Music Industry? | Scoop.it
It’s becoming much clearer what this week’s removal of Taylor Swift’s back catalogue from some streaming music services is all about.

Gary Rudat's insight:

Taylor Swift thinks the artists lose out in the end. I honestly think this is pretty funny. Anyone who is anyone knows that people are getting her stuff for free and has been for years. Since Napster like 15 years ago.

Since the iTunes Store launched in 2003, digital music sales have been viewed as the music industry’s saving grace in the face of declining physical album sales and rampant online piracy.

Gary Rudat's insight:

Yeah, online streaming or even downloading has ways of killing artists sales now days yes, I believe it. That's also been going on for years and just cause artists sales might not be to what their standard was before they might look this whole Spotify thing as a scapegoat soon enough.

The music industry loves to play the blame game, while ignoring their own mistakes. Many articles take direct aim at these online services without completely understanding that their just in accordance to the times. If anything, Spotify and YouTube should be the new and improved formats to deliver music. Instead of pointing fingers, the music industry should look into a more updated business model.

Gary Rudat's insight:

Adel's manager supports Spotify by saying "Streaming is the future." I would have to agree. Streaming is definitely the future of technology and where we are headed as Digital Citizens.

In this article Adele's manager goes into detail about how Streaming Music online is the future and that people should come to terms with it.

Jake Lee's curator insight, October 19, 2016 11:07 PM

I partially agree with the article. Personally, I prefer old-school album listening. Streaming music has to be focused on just a song. I like listening a whole album entirely. However, I will not deny streaming is the future. Convenience always wins against traditional things. Is it sad? Well, there are people think like me, so I won't worry about it that much.

To beat iTunes is a great feat. iTunes and seeing who is behind it (apple), you would think apple would come out as the winner but not in Online Music streaming in Europe.

Nick Brown's curator insight, September 13, 2015 4:57 PM

Streamings' popularity continues to rise.  The generic music buying services, while steady, are starting to decline slightly.  Convenience is key.  Personally I enjoy itunes, because I don't need cell service to play the music I love.  Although more streaming services are allowing downloading for offline play, owning albums is much easier.
