2 thoughts on “Spotify: We Are Not for Sale”

  1. Based on Netflix’s ability to continue growing at a high rate without buying threatening startups and competitors in its space, I think we are seeing that the company may be able to continue growing and realize success by simply contracting license agreements and rights to distribution. The Netflix streaming service is already coming pre-installed in many of our home entertainment products. I think that if Netflix decides it wants to offer albums or songs for streaming, it will already have such a massive avenue for distribution in place that the only variable potentially holding it back would be exclusive licenses to stream music that were already awarded to another entity. I am not sure if such exclusive contracts are currently flowing through the industry. I do know that different streaming servies with monthly subscriptions offer many of the same songs. Does anybody know the details of such relationships between record labels and these streaming services?
