Pink Floyd takes on Pandora

Posted by madhack on Jun 27, 2013

The remaining members of Pink Floyd have written an op-ed for the USA Today on their problems with the Pandora music streaming service, specifically mentioning Pandora's lobbying to change how royalties are calculated for online streaming. While a cynic might wonder if it has anything to do with their recent addition on Spotify, it's worth noting that their opposition actually began in November. If there's any relationship, it seems more likely that their Pandora opinions led them towards Spotify than anything else.

In the interest of fairness, we'll also link to Pandora's response at their corporate blog disputing the band's claims and numbers. musicFIRST has more details on how they arrived at the 85% figure, and it's clear that the debate isn't going away just yet.
