at least, so says Paul McGuinness (manager of U2)
and here's a response to the article
i listen to spotify all day long. having given it some thought, i'd be willing to pay a hell of a lot of money for it. i mean i really do listen to several hours of music each day, i listen from waking up till leaving for work, and then i put on some music as soon as i walk in the door. if somehow i got told i had to pay 50p an hour for spotify i'd be cool with paying that.
however, i wouldn't pay for an all-you-can-watch film service. i don't watch many films. i would rather pay a one off cost now and then. people are fine with the idea of renting films (or they were) but renting albums ? don't think you'd convince people to do that.
