This is all about price. Spotify should be for consumers that are willing to pay an extreme premium. Spotify's technology is great and should be embraced but ONLY if the service is priced properly in relation to existing revenue streams. Once again, the powers that be that cut deals with Spotify allowed themselves to be whored as a loss leaders to popularize third party technology. It should be the other way around or prohibit access to the content period.

Maybe not but the numbers don't lie. He flipped Def Jam twice. He flipped WMG three times if you include the initial deal. I know what a scoreboard is.

Lyor Cohen is a black-belt music executive of highest degree. Look at his track record. All he does is win, win, win. Look at the artists and executives he has truly committed to--they all win, win, win. Look at his enemies--they all have fallen on their own swords. Any way you cut it there is a lot to learn from this man. We are talking about a guy that started as a tour manager for Russell Simmons. This is a true warrior.

Any way you cut this was a poorly executed move by Tunecore--a PR disaster.

There is only one way streaming can work: build the subscriber base quickly, then raise the price for subscriptions, then raise the royalties paid to artists/labels for streams. Lastly, piracy must be continue to decline. If all of the above happens, we see a bright future for the music industry.

That could work but what they really need to do is kill the returns. Retailers have to be on the hook for what they order.
