Re: It's Contagious: Taylor Swift Is Withholding Her Latest Release from Spotify...
Encourage piracy is an understatement. Most teens who buy Spotify or Rhapsody are not going to go to itunes and buy her songs. They are going to fire up torrents or youtube downloaders.
People are not made of money these days, especially teens when it comes to music. They will pay for a concert. They will buy an album if they have a good reason to own it. But they will not pay for Spotify and iTunes downloads.
Taylor is attempting to double-dip here. Get people to buy her music outright, then get them to pay her down the road with streams for the exact same product (her music). That's not right.
