Music Labels are Dropping Out of Spotify

Today, some big music news came out. Spotify, a music streaming program, had over 200 music labels drop out of Spotify. Spotify was a music streaming program, so you could listen to a variety of music from different artists, for a monthly fee. However, you couldn’t download any of the songs. The music label pulling out of Spotify is STHoldings, a UK music label. STHoldings released a quote,

As a distributor we have to do what is best for our labels. The majority of which do not want their music on such services because of the poor revenues and the detrimental affect on sales. Add to that the feeling that their music loses its specialness by its exploitation as a low value/free commodity.

So is this a Spotify killer? Nah. No big companies have dropped out yet, such as Sony and Warner Bros. Music. But with the new addition of Google Music over the past week, I won’t be surprised if more labels dropped out. After all, Spotify does over low revenues to the labels. Google Music may be the new place to go for music labels. But if Google Music wants to kill Spotify, Google Music will have to get licenses world-wide, and not only in the USA.
