Yet another Spotify/Grooveshark/Last FM business model based on short term greed. Fill a short term need by not paying the artists and writers, hoping that it will become a brand leader and able to sort out that thorny issue of paying people later. What other businesses can set up globally with content it doesn't own and worry about getting permission later?
Music isn't free and shouldn't be. I am all in favour of creative models for online music services but paying the artists and writers is always an afterthought.


Deezer and Spotify are actually paying artists from day one as they don't use UGC to run their service, you should not mix them up with businesses who have a "different approach". With all the diverse opinions about these new streaming models it's important to look at the right facts...
