it is an online jukebox, you install in (takes 3 mins) adn you have instant access to any artist and song you wish (well most anyway).

It is very very handy. you want to hear a song you simply search for it and BOOOOM, the song starts.

it's a bit like taking cinema away from someone and then saying 'But, don't worry! Here! I give you...youtube!'.

It was free and unlimited, now it's restricted to 10 hours a week and also you can only listen to each track a maximum of 5 times ever. £10 a month gets you the premium service with unlimited listens to whatever they have on there, which is a lot of music. It's the equivalent of an album a month but no-one wants to pay it, we've just got used to free music although I can't see how its sustainable in the long run for the artists.

advertising.

artist - manager - spotify

artist - manager - music exec's - disc printers - shops

You've obviously not seen the total pittance that even the top listened to artists on spotify get?

Example: Lady Gaga, one of the most popular artists on spotify, made £100 for having one of her songs listened to a million times over a period of half a year.

and in contrast she made how much from torrent downloads?

also, fuck her. with switchblades.

spotifiy have obviously got themselves a hell of a contract there. who is getting the ad revenue? what do they propose doing with the $10 premium subs?

If she is getting £100 and is one of the most played artists on spotify how much are the smaller artists earning who may rely on dwindling album sales to earn a living?

You and GA are just proving my point. You want to listen to new music presumably not by the most successful artists yet you're being ignorant of the fact that artists do need money and don't just do what they do for people to pay nothing illegally downloading their stuff or getting paid only 0.01p for a listen of a track. I'm not trying to be self righteous, I'm guilty of it too.
