Thread Name: Spotify - legal music streaming
Subject: RE: Spotify - great, but only for some...
Free, and all legal and OK with the record companies involved - does this mean that these artists get some sort of remuneration out of it, a royalty or anything? I know that "payment" has beome a dirty word on the internet, and I also know that the enhanced exposure and appreciation mean a lot to any performer. But they can't pay their bills with appreciation, however sincere or widespread.

I've heard nothing but raves about Spotify and I'm not trying to knock it. But I DO want to know more about how it operates. Anyone fill me in?
