Taylor Swift on Apple Music

This is not about me. Thankfully I am on my fifth album and can support myself, my band, crew, and entire management team by playing live shows. This is about the new artist or band that has just released their first single and will not be paid for its success. This is about the young songwriter who just got his or her first cut and thought that the royalties from that would get them out of debt. This is about the producer who works tirelessly to innovate and create, just like the innovators and creators at are pioneering in their field…but will not get paid for a quarter of a year’s worth of plays on his or her songs.

Taylor Swift’s love letter to Apple ’s free 3 month trial. Apple’s Eddy Cue responded to her letter, and Apple will change the policy on the trial period. Interesting.
