Music Streaming is “just dressed-up piracy” says Rosanne Cash
Singer and songwriter Roseanne Cash has testified passionately before Congress on the need for copyright reform. But Johnny Cash's little girl also has some strong opinions about music streaming – including paid services like Spotify. She took to Facebook this week to throw a few bombs at what she sees as pirates dressed in new clothing.
Cash also said her music had been streamed by Spotify 600,000 times over an 18-month period, resulting just $104 in royalties. She did not clarify, however, if that payment was for her as a songwriter or artist royalties funnelled through a label.
