That's what I've been saying all along...the way to reduce piracy is to give people a great service at a great price and people will pay. Spotify is the first music service I have ever paid for...Love it! Now if we could just get the movie industry to do something similar...but they are really greedy so it will take a lot longer time but at some point they will see its better to offer a cheap service than to offer an expensive service and go after pirates...because nobody wins....And they sure aren't making any more money that way .. actually making more people pirate because it's A LOT cheaper and easier. Take spotify as an example...why download mp3's illegally anymore..you can get almost every song you want legally and great quality...and its a lot easier...that's how you convert pirates to paying customers!! Not by suing them....lol
@Guest, correct. I've voiced a similar opinion in another post. Spotify is the easiest way to get music to my ears and it's the business model which looks by galaxies far away, the best alternative to the since long obsolete CD business the RIAA are desperately fighting for.
That is only the case if you previously had an account prior to them making an FB account mandatory. You can no longer sign up w/o an FB account. Please show me I am wrong as it looks like a great service save for the FB issue.
