Everyone knows about Apple’s iTunes, Pandora and Spotify are avenues for music lovers to listen to their favorite musicians on their mobile devices or while they are at home, without being tied down to purchasing a CD and the hassle that comes along with that. Mp3s have been the future and most music consumers have the accessibility of their music on their iPod or smartphone.
Google wants to get into the piece of the pie that MTV has left open since it went to reality television and averted from playing music, a market that has up until recently dominated by Apple. Now there are many contenders, and with the revamping and unveiling of the YouTube Music Key it’s another slice of the pie to divide, and with the collaboration of Vice Media and Live Nation Entertainment also jumping in the ring.
YouTube will also offer a paid subscription to Google Play Music.
The controversy with all these “freemium” music services is that the musicians and all that are involved in the music creation process feel like they aren’t being compensated with enough royalties from the free play options. This has been an issue ever since the piracy of music was the main way consumers received their music. The industry has been struggling to control piracy since then and these music services have been trying to help in that effort.
