But I feel that I need to share the article and the report because I would have assumed that Spotify is not revenue neutral and is negatively affecting the music economy. This proves at a superficial level that Spotify is at least creating an equal amount of revenue. The problem is where does that revenue go?
I have a hard time thinking that Spotify is really affecting piracy that much, but it seems possible based on this report. However, we need to see this replicated many times over to make any strong conclusions.
