Spotify's Tiny Royalties Piss Off Indies, But They're Not Ditching the Service. “Hello, this is John Maus.
Please listen to my new album on Spotify.” Direct and chipper, the in-house advertisement was nevertheless an ominous thing to hear between songs this week, a few days after the Minnesota electro-pop singer created an indie-rock controversy by telling Pitchfork he’s glad so many record stores “have little ‘closed’ signs on their door now”—and nearly a month since Spotify, the latest service that promises to change how we consume music, arrived in the United States. Maus later apologized for the Pitchfork comment—and offered the clarification that he was referring to big-box outlets like Best Buy, not mom ’n’ pops—but his point remained: Here’s a guy on the right side of history, losers be damned.
If you’ve been lucky enough to receive an emailed invite to the service—or paid to join—you know that being on Team Spotify rules. Spotify’s streamable library contains millions of songs, licensed with the approval of artists and labels. Pandora Partners With DMX To Launch Internet Radio For Businesses. Broadcast radio isn't the only market ready for disruption.
Internet radio company Pandora unveiled on Tuesday a business-to-business product in conjunction with brand experience service DMX. Pandora for businesses costs $24.95 per month plus the cost of a DMX media player. Stations can be personalized for each location or set up to cover multiple locations. Businesses can subscribe to Pandora at the DMX website. "Businesses have been asking us for years to offer a commercial solution for Pandora," Executive Vice President of Business Development and Corporate Development Jessica Steel in a statement. As a leader in its category and a disruptive force in the radio business, Pandora carries big expectations. Pandora is not without competition in the business market, however. But while the higher-end, bespoke programming solutions of Mood Media and PlatNetwork probably won't be affected by Pandora's new service, the low end of the market is far more exposed to new competitors. How Spotify Works. Spotify uses some particularly clever streaming technology to deliver all that instant music.
It’s been described in an academic paper by Spotify techno-wizards Gunnar Kreitz and Fredrik Niemelä, who included some very interesting statistics and analysis of their measurements taken during one week in the early part of 2010. It’s a pretty dense technical read, but there are some fascinating stats to be gleaned amongst the computer science. Read on for a condensed summary below! General Stats Spotify is the only on-demand music streaming service that’s not web-based. Playback Stats Most playbacks (61%) are listened to in a predictable order (the user just listens to an album from the first track onwards). The Short Tail?

Why Spotify can never be profitable: The secret demands of record labels. Imagine a new hot-dog selling venture.
Let’s also say there’s only one supplier to purchase hot dogs from. Instead of simply charging a fixed price for hot dogs, that supplier demands the HIGHER of the following: $1 per hot dog sold OR $2 for every customer served OR 50 percent of all revenues for anything sold in the store.In addition, the supplier requires a two-year minimum order of 300 hot dogs per day, payable all in advance. If fewer hot dogs are sold, there is no refund. If more than 300 hot dogs are sold each day, payments to the supplier are generated by calculating $2 per customer or 50 percent of total revenues, so an additional payment is due to the supplier. After the first two years, the supplier can unilaterally adjust any of the pricing terms and the shop can never switch suppliers.
