When I read DigitalMusicNews it just seems they are trying to cause controversy. There most recent article was about Music streaming and how they dont have hope in the music streaming business model.
I’m sorry: I want to be open-minded, I’m trying to be part of the future. But was is that future, exactly? Unless something changes drastically, I’m not sure it’s a very rosy one.
I think you are all missing the point here. Spotify is in user acquisition stage, which means they are going to lose money as they have huge capital to back them up. The best sign is that revenues are rising fast and proportionately against losses it looks very good for them as a business.
Pandora is in a much tougher spot, because they are locked to the USA, which means they only have limited revenue growth potential. Pandora needs to think about how they are going to expand internationally or they are going to be forgotten.
