Spotify makes no such things.
Contracts might be bad for artists but they are not making money either as far as I know.
People don't pay if free music is available. That is the core issue. If you go back to before streaming people will just go back to piracy. It's just a lot easier now.
Google has just blocked all Danish music licensed by their prs Koda on YouTube, to blackmail them to a depriving contract. They did the same with the Finnish Teosto a couple of years ago, and tried in both cases to make it look like it were just greed by the rights holders. YouTube doesnít pay proper royalties. In absolute majority of cases, the rights holders donít get a cent. This is theft.
Companies like Google, Spotify, FB etc. are really dangerous, and should be stopped by legislation.
