What's Taylor Swift's beef with Spotify

News: 7th November 2014 by Louise Dodgson under Artist Managers, Music Publishing, Record Labels, Selling & Distributing Your Music

This week Taylor Switft (and no doubt her label and/or management) have made the decision to remove her entire back catalogue from Spotify. However, this isn't the first time she's stood up to Spotify - she refunsed to release her 2012 album Red onto the streaming service with the argument that Spotify doesn't give artists a decent rate per stream.

But with the release of her latest album 1989, she has gone one step further and asked Spotify to remove all her music from the service, and they have obliged. Is this a wise move or nwith the popularity of the stature of Swift can pull this kind of thing off. Read more about the latest Spotify drama via the links below...
