Daniel Ek, founder of music streaming service Spotify thinks that “free songs won’t kill the music industry but will make it 10 times bigger”
With this, the Swedish entrepreneur is rejecting claims that his service is killing the music industry and also claims easier access to songs will make the business “10 times bigger.”
After he launched his music streaming service, the 32-year-old Swede has come under fire from various musicians and celebrities. Several artists have withdrawn their permission for their tracks being used.
Ek however says that those who see his music streaming service is a danger to the industry are wrong. According to him, his music streaming service will “catapult the music industry to a level never before reached”. Obviously, not anyone is sharing his view.
