This is a very well done bargaining chip,played by Ms. Swift. Like her or not, this lady is one smooth businesswoman and has an ace team around her.
Many commentators have noted with concern the issue Taylor points out here. Will Apple respond? I hope so...this could be that rare "win/win" outcome if Apple reverses course.
And here is the Apple formula, which takes into account the non-payment period by paying a higher overall commission rate.
The Loop on the issue.
I agree with Taylor. This should never have happened .... Not sure who is coming up with the nonsense of not paying royalties for the trial period but I can totally understand Swift's point of view. If Apple had just agreed the headlines would read "Swift chooses to put her music on Apple's new service ... leaving Spotify and all other streaming services without the biggest selling artist of 2015" ..... Instead we have Swift publicly spanking Apple's new service.
I'm switching anyway but think about all the Swift fans that would switch just because she said Apple's service is fair to artists.
If I were Tim Cook I would tear into whomever came up with the stupid idea of trying to get artists to subsidize the worlds largest company in starting a music service ....... Apple Fail.
OK ... still loving my watch ... my brother tried to get one in Orange County yesterday but they only had the smaller sport watch .... he is flying home to be with my Dad today and will take him to the local Apple Store and try to get 2 watches.
Happy Father's day to all ... and as always ... Cheers to the longs !
