Title: Projekt pulls its catalog from Spotify
Post by: ffcal on September 28, 2011, 02:05:00 PM
This is probably more of interest to the artists here than the listeners, though listeners may want to know how little small labels and their artists would receive from streaming sites like Spotify:

Needless to say, I'm completely with Projekt on this one.

That last infographic is particularly useful. How many of us are getting 4 million plays per month? Or 1.5 million, or even 800,000?

Donīt have an illusion...even with such info the prayers (artists and labels) for downloads will still remain no matter if logic or not
