Apple is paying artists for streams in trial after complaint Taylor Swift




Apple will pay artists royalties for music streaming customers when they are in the free trial from Apple Music. The manufacturer did not want to at first, but adjusted its policy after an overt complaint from singer Taylor Swift.

That complaint Swift has formed the basis of the change, evident from a tweet by Apple chief executive Eddy Cue. It is also obvious, because the policy of artists and record companies not to pay caused problems during the negotiations before Apple revealed its music service, wrote Recode a week ago.

It is unknown why Apple suddenly knocked over the helm following the complaint by Swift. Perhaps the manufacturer was worried that the singer would take her music to the service, such as Swift previously did with Spotify. In published on Tumblr complaint Swift says she is not going to have her own income, but that of smaller artists and labels, which would have to bridge the trial period of three months from Apple Music financial problems.

How much Apple will pay to artists during the trial period is unknown, but it will be less than after the trial. Apple Music comes out on June 30, in all probability in the Netherlands and Belgium.
