what's more telling is an artist like Coldplay NOT putting their new album on Spotify...

and now the black keys... more people are getting hip to this and expect it to continue... the major labels are equity partners praying for an IPO to get out before it goes down...

oh, and this is cute... upload your music to spotify for free, and surrender your royalties (that are already so small as to not exist)...

the labor cost of putting music on spotify probably cost more than the music will earn in a year... not a good model...
