“Sick of my money funding crap.” A Fan’s Tweet
Subscription services are one of the few secular trends in the current economy that is not yet reactive to trade wars or interest rates. Subscription services are found in many areas of the economy, but music drives some of the big ones like Spotify, Amazon and Apple.
But when fans find out that their money gets paid for music they never listen to performed by artists they would never listen to, it may give cord cutting a whole new meaning. The ethical pool solution could give services a chance to get ahead of yet more negative fan reaction.
