Recording Academy President Speaks Out Against Music Streaming As CBS Touts Record-Breaking…
Recording Academy President Neil Portnow made a brief but pointed speech criticizing music streaming services at this year’s Grammy Awards ceremony. The following day, CBS touted record-breaking figures for video streaming of the show in spite of a technical mishap that prevented many users from accessing the broadcast. […] That speech could also have been intended to criticize music fans who illegally download music for free, but Portnow’s latest comments more specifically allude to the small royalty payments that artists receive when their music is streamed on Spotify, Pandora and other streaming services. – James Geddes, Tech Times
