WOOHAA! Swedish authors first payment from Spotify...

Lady Gaga's Poker Face was written by , among others ,Red One and now STIM, the organisation that brings in and pays out money for airplay and performances of songs writes that the first payment from Spotify came this summer and they use Poker Face as an example.
It was streamed 1 000 000 times and for that the rightholders got *drumrollllllllll* about 300 dollars.....to share.....YIIIIIHAAAAAAAA!!!! Spotify really is the future for us writers , that's for sure......

The funny thing is that they compare these one million single "downloads" with it being aired once during a show with a million listeners on the air....and that'd only give the rightholders 15 dollars.....
