If the article is true the hot shots at Spotify truly need to get their heads out of their asses and start to treat their content producers a bit better.
If it's true. Unfortunately one of the problems with spotify is that it pays quite a lot to the big licensers in the music industry who do not then pay the artists. There are big players and small trying to get their cut of spotify revenues. Big music is desperately trying to stick a wedge between spotify and individual musicians. There is a lot of money involved so expect bias and propaganda.
