Re: It's Contagious: Taylor Swift Is Withholding Her Latest Release from Spotify...
Actually no, I don't think accountants look at all the possible revenue streams (especially when it comes to taking into account Grooveshark vs. Spotify vs. Rdio, etc.).
Adults also happen to listen to music on YouTube and Grooveshark. And guess what, the generation that grew up using BitTorrent is now at the age where they would otherwise start buying albums for kids. You must be astounded!
If songwriters and labels alike are going to attack piracy, they ought to reconsider withholding their content from paid streaming services.
