Great article…totally made the issues a lot more clear.

That being said, had a few more clarifying questions: The solution makes a lot of sense to me for paid subscribers, but how does the model work for those that just listen to Spotify for free? I know Spotify still gets a cash flow from the free users through ad impressions, but how do artists get paid from those free streams? Is that also factored into the Big Pool payment method? And how would the solution affect these steams? Or are free users such a small percentage of the Spotify environment that it doesn’t really matter.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
