Spotify is limiting free streaming for its own good

Universal isn’t the only label Spotify has to come to terms with. The company faces new deals with both Sony and Warner Music Group, which means this week’s agreement could serve as a template for those talks. If it does, it’s possible that that most of the high-profile releases would be limited to Spotify Premium for the first two weeks after they’re released. If you’re already a Spotify customer, you’re well aware of the two-week wait that Apple Music exclusives typically demand. – Billy Steele, Engadget
