      Sure. Like any other large org that capitalizes on other people’s labor.

        Spotify did the legwork of putting the platform in place tho. Personally I tend to buy from Bandcamp, but you won’t find everything you’re looking for.

          Yeah, Spotify definitely did make a global platform which people could rely on. But that doesn’t make it immune to criticism for their monopolistic behavior. You wouldn’t say the same thing about Google - who uses their market position to set their own prices for advertising, etc.

            It’s not like there isn’t any competition out there to Spotify (Apple Music, YouTube Music, Deezer, Amazon Prime Music,Tidal are the top ones that come to mind), the artists are free not not publish their music there if they disagree.

              Ask any artist about this, and they will tell you they are going to post on Spotify regardless of the earning potential due to exposure.
