Musicians Not Happy with Revenue from Spotify?

    A few weeks ago, a few artists (and their music labels) pulled numerous tracks, and even all of their songs, from the music streaming service, Spotify. One very notable artist is Paul McCartney. In fact, he pulled his music from all online streaming services. Other artists have dine this to, such as Coldplay AC/DC pulling their music from Rhapsody. The reason for these happenings are all about money; they feel their revenue isn'y sufficient. And truly, it probably isn't. The artists only get a few cents per play of the song, and mainly the musicians are at loss at Spotify. Just a few dollars a month, to listen to what might be $150 worth of songs on iTunes. What are your thoughts on the artists and their money disputes? Feel free to tell me in the comments down below.
