Spotify's missing profits

Some may see Spotify as the saviour of digital music but the service gives artists a raw deal and could be just as bad for them as online piracy.

Spotify’s Australian launch will make the Australian music streaming market even more crowded than it has quickly become this year. Paris-based Deezer launched in Australia in April, and MOG’s is set to bring its streaming music service to Telstra’s subscribers via an exclusive deal in a couple of weeks. Add to this that offerings are already available from Rdio, Rara, Sony Music Unlimited, Microsoft Zune and JB HiFi and it’s clear that consumers are now spoilt for choice when it comes to unlimited all-you-can-eat music to computers and mobile devices for a fixed monthly fee of between $8 and $15.
