Re: It's Contagious: Taylor Swift Is Withholding Her Latest Release from Spotify...
Most people aren't bothered that it's not in Spotify. She isn't gaining new fans - she is beyond established. People that want to hear her record are not hesitating to spend the $13 with the push of one touch-screen button on their iPhone to instantly have it.
There is no "managing files" unless you are a DJ. The entire point is that they are on your mobile device, your cloud, and anywhere else.
I'm on team Spotify all the way - I just get it in this particular case, with a legacy act like this, for lack of better description.
