Taylor Swift vs AppleMusic
23 June 2015
Apple have finally capitulated to the complainants about its policy of non-payment to music copyrights' owners when people try the new Apple Music Service in the 3-month free trial period.
One of the threats which prompted the policy change at Apple was the blog post of Taylor Swift "To Apple, Love Taylor,"which gained shortly tens of thousands shares all over the social media.
"I'm sure you are aware that Apple Music will be offering a free 3 month trial to anyone who signs up for the service. I'm not sure you know that Apple Music will not be paying writers, producers, or artists for those three months. I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company,"Swift wrote on Tumblr.
"#AppleMusic will pay artist for streaming, even during customer's free trial period," Cue tweeted, adding that "We hear you @taylorswift13 and indie artists. Love, Apple."
