Teenagers listen to music these days in ways that are alien to me. Gone are the days of pouring over compact disc booklets with session personnel details, informal studio photo galleries, lyric sheets, and liner notes. Today, it’s all all about downloading songs onto a myriad of formats for instant gratification. Many of these apps are unfamiliar to me, yet I remain aware that downloadable music creates ongoing copyright issues. Enter Spotify, a commercial music streaming service providing digital rights management-restricted content from record labels including Sony, EMI, Warner Music Group, and Universal. Music can be browsed or searched by artist, album, genre, playlist, or record label. Paid “Premium” subscriptions remove advertisements and allow users to download music to listen to offline.
Sales of Taylor Swift’s album “1989,” accounted for more than one in every five North American record sold in the fall of 2014. Just two weeks after observers predicted that 2014 might become the first year where no artist received a US platinum sales certificate, “1989” went platinum in just a single week. Amid declining album sales, some commentators have credited Swift’s huge sales to her stand against Spotify. Unable to stream “1989,” fans were compelled to purchase the record.
Time to investigate what’s happening in the world of music copyright.
