Look I see his points but the old model is dead and never coming back. I love Spotify as a fan for this reason. With adult bills I no longer can buy music the way I once did. Hell 2 years ago my average was $500+ on ITunes, CD and music DVD. I am down to maybe 3 albums a year. With Spotify I can listen to every new release. I pay the $9.99 so I know something is going to the artist...not much but something. Do they prefer the model of everyone stealing it and getting zero?
Now with Spoify and streaming services there needs to be an updated formula. I usually play an album 3x to give it a fair shake. A great album or song I'll play 20-30 times in a year. So there needs to be in place a more fair way that an artist gets paid for streams that will lead to an equal pay as if you bought it. So if you pay 9.99 on ITunes then "X" amount of plays would be the equal. And I would be willing to pay more for Spotify!

Also with a new model streaming services need to be able to "map" who is streaming and where. This would give the artist and label an idea of where to play and tour. Labels need to back bands this way as sales no longer drive the business model.
