Taylor Swift vs Apple. Popular singer Taylor Swift will not bow down to tech giant Apple as she lambasts its policy on iTunes that will force artists to dole out free 3 months of their songs to Apple since it is within its "three-month free trial period.:
These are not the complaints of a spoiled, petulant child. These are the echoed sentiments of every artist, writer and producer in my social circles who are afraid to speak up publicly because we admire and respect Apple so much. We simply do not respect this particular call.Hew seeping statement against Apple's policy on iTunes was published through a post on Tumblr. Taylor Swift even threatened to pull her latest album from Apple Music.
Swift stated that she would pull it off due to Apple's new streaming service wherein the company wasn't going to compensate music writers, producers, and artists during the three-month free trial period.
Eventually Apple's Eddy Cue responded and answered the worries not only of Taylor Swift but of various other independent artists who will be in danger of losing some very relevant revenues.
#AppleMusic will pay artists for streaming, even for customer's free trial period.
Has Taylor Swift been the voice of independent artists against those who want to trample on their intellectual property rights? What do you think of Taylor's stand and actions against Apple?
