How to get free music: Music producer says no to Spotify for free
The music producer behind the popular music streaming service Spotify says it will not sell or share its music for free.
The move came on the heels of Spotify announcing it will charge publishers for free content, but it’s unclear whether that means Spotify will also be able to charge publishers money for the same content.
In an interview with Billboard, Tim Bostrom, CEO of the music technology company, said the company will not make money from its music business because it will need to pay publishers for their work.
Bostrom’s comments came after Spotify announced that it will be charging publishers to stream music for their websites.
Spotify said it would be selling its content to publishers for “free,” which means it won’t be able pay them to stream its music.
Bostram says that will be the case for all future content, and he does not see a problem with this.
“We will always have an obligation to pay for it.
It’s that simple,” Bostrum said.
“Publishers will be able and we will work with them.”
The move is not entirely surprising given the company’s long history of monetizing its content.
Spotify’s early days were a bit rocky, as the company failed to gain traction as a music streaming services platform, with its early releases often receiving poor reviews.
It eventually expanded into other areas, including the video and sports video.
