Some artists are outraged at what they see are paltry amounts which are being paid to them by Spotify.
Spotify, along with its competitors is a paid service called “streaming music”. You start it up, tell it what song/artist you want to listen to, and you start listening. Every time someone listens to a song, the artist in question gets paid by Spotify. Spotify gets their cut, so they make something too. A win-win, everybody’s happy, right?
Well, not quite. For a start, it doesn’t stop people from illegally pirating music. If someone is determined not to pay for music, then a paid streaming music service such as Spotify isn’t going to stop them. So Spotify isn’t going to nuke the world’s problem of illegal music sharing overnight.
