Is that like the freeloaders who watch ITV and C4 and pay nothing for it? Or have you overlooked the advertising?All the arguments about people not having the paltry sums to pay for Spotify are ridiculous and should be ignored. Anyone believing them should be transported back to 1985 and left there.
Yes, you're right, the 'crawling, vomit inducing business reason' is that Spotify need 'Freeloaders' to be exposed to the adverts - adverts that subsidise what the payers pay.I just wish that the massive amount of folk who get every record in the shop for nothing, be wiped from the platform and be forced to cough up.
I know there is probably some crawling, vomit inducing business reason why this does not happen
Everyone who works for ITV and C4 gets paid properly.Is that like the freeloaders who watch ITV and C4 and pay nothing for it? Or have you overlooked the advertising?
People should pay for music, full-stop.Yes, you're right, the 'crawling, vomit inducing business reason' is that Spotify need 'Freeloaders' to be exposed to the adverts - adverts that subsidise what the payers pay.
If the 'Freeloaders' were 'wiped from the platform' there'd be no adverts and if there were no adverts.....there would be fewer people paying the necessarily higher prices.
Of course, if all the subscribers are like you, they'll be happy paying more. So no problem
Yes, I subscribe to Qobuz, buy CDs from regular stores and Bandcamp, and the occasional secondhand LP.Everyone who works for ITV and C4 gets paid properly.
Every actor and actress gets paid properly.
Even ITV and C4 get paid.
Spotify is very different.
May I ask if you pay for Spotify or music in general. And if not, would you consider doing so.
I don't feel sorry for the artists, they aren't starving. Artists make the bulk of their money from gigs and touring. I wouldn't mind touring for 6 months of the year to get 6 months off and earn $40 million.People should pay for music, full-stop.
People should pay for train journeys, and they do.
People should pay for food. And they do.
People should not be given everything for nothing.
The business model is clearly wrong and cheapens music.
Do you pay or do you ransack the shop.
'Ransak the shop' I like you. You're funny.Do you pay or do you ransack the shop.
