What age is she? 21? Everybody's talking bout the good ol daysI was at soccer mommy in the grand social in September. Before death by chocolate, She said having music on sale in the merchandise table.
She was not impressed by the person who shouted that they could just listen to it on Spotify. She then talked about how people don't value music anymore.
It's an interesting point. You can't force everyone to buy "physical" product when most of them don't care that much.
Having said that, has Spotify ever made a profit? Or to put it another way, could Spotify make a profit if it wanted to? Amazon for years made no profit because it reinvested every penny back in itself, it could have made a profit but chose not to. Is that how Spotify is working or is it genuinely losing money?
Bit different though isn't it? Spotify must have an exponentially larger library (is that what it's called) and music isn't cheap. Netflix just need enough content to keep their users interested they don't need everything.Spotify shares already traded publicly, they can't be bought out easily
If Netflix is profitable I can't see why Spotify couldn't be.
Certainly my collection has more music than Spotify when it comes to a few dozen artists. Streaming is great for current smallish artists (in terms of finding them, I doubt they are great for surviving as an artist) and anything mainstream but not so much of you really want to dig deep. But I’m preaching to the choir here.Don't some of the others have more music than spotify?
Not really sure I get your logic. So Spotify has much more of an incentive to squeeze every penny, every drop it can get out of the music it shares. That's not necessarily a good thing for music in general. That said it's a terrific application. I don't pay for it but I see why it took off.Of course they do. All their eggs are in music's basket. The other three have (substantial) other sources of income
