Re: It's Contagious: Taylor Swift Is Withholding Her Latest Release from Spotify...
We're both right.
If you make valuable music, then you want to get paid.
But if you make worthless music, then it's perfectly natural to give it away.
So there'll always be some amount of streaming, but it will only appeal to hobbyists. Especially now that we see all these coordinated international efforts to stop mainstream piracy.
Diminishing theft + no need for labels + the death of Spotify = A New Golden Era For Music.
