Re: It's Contagious: Taylor Swift Is Withholding Her Latest Release from Spotify...
Spotify is popular in Sweden and Netherlands because they are headquartered in Sweden and incorporated in Netherlands.
Huh? Spotify is incorporated in several European countries and the US as well. Here is the list http://www.spotify.com/us/about-us/contact/

They may be popular in some other European countries by paying those independent artists a larger rate at the expense of too many others.
Where on earth did you learn that?
