Is Spotify in on the game?
Here is what a Spotify spokesperson has to say on that subject:
“Our policy is that we do not pay royalties on the number of hours listeners are listening to an artist on Spotify per day. As a matter of practice, we will not confirm or confirm the exact number of hours a user is listening to our service on a subscription basis. Our aim is to give artists a fair return for their contribution towards the development of these systems.”
When you factor in the fact that the music industry is going through massive changes, and the industry is always looking for new ways to monetize artists, it’s easy to see why Spotify might not pay much.

I mean come on. How much money does any musician get from streaming services? It probably doesn’t come close to the revenue of an established record label. But we all know that this is a new model that can work. If it didn’t, then Spotify would have been left scrambling to figure out how to pay for the services it has.
The more important question is how much Spotify will make from the current streaming services that the company is bundling with its current subscription plans. Is that going to be enough to offset the losses, or will there be some kind of transitional phase where Spotify just stops being the company we know it to be, and gets replaced by a competitor like Pandora?
I’m leaning towards Pandora, but that’s a discussion for the fans to have.
For the past three of his first five seasons as the Detroit Lions’ starting quarterback, Matthew Stafford has struggled mightily in the regular season. He’s completed just 45.2 percent (15-of-37!) of his passes and has thrown 15 interceptions in five games.
Despite the poor outings, it’s clear that Stafford’s play has improved significantly in a short time. During his first five seasons, Stafford hasn’t completed more than 75 percent of his passes in any game. In addition, his completion percentage has never been higher than 76.7 for any of his past four seasons. Stafford also owns a career passer rating of 109.9. Now, Stafford has finally improved his play in the postseason.
