It would seem they are about to. One of my favorite hi-fi & music channels that I follow on YouTube posted this morning Spotify's intention to re distribute money small artists earn to bigger artists, in essence stealing from their suppliers. Watch the video. Recently I unsubscribed to Spotify as they no longer have music by some of my favorite artists, and I'm tired of continually paying for the privilege of listening to music that in some instances I already own.
For musicians just starting out in their music career, to be told that they will earn nothing for the privelege of having their music on Spotify is farcical.
Heres how they justify their decision, and while they do have issues with bad actors, this shouldnt impact what they term emerging artists. A thousand streams seems reasonable just as a thousand subscribers on YouTube is the qualifying threshold. The problem is this will turn away artists starting out and those who have only a small following. The whole streaming system is in need of serious overhaul.
Spotify's Notice to Artists - read it here.
For a long time many members have requested a feature to monitor and/or be notified of certain items being posted to the Classifieds.
We had many attempts at this in the past but ultimately it was near impossible due to the amount of server resources it needed to use to actively monitor and then send notifications.
Recently we discovered a way to do this, and I have now implemented it as a trial.
Note this only applies to Classifieds sub-forums.

Today we say goodbye to John Barbuto.
A consummate gentleman, and founder of JB Hi-fi, who lived a rich and full life to the age of 86.
Survived by his partner Rita, his three children and respective grandchildren.
He leaves an indelible mark on not only the people who knew and admired him, but the Australian audio industry - its life, story and longevity.
If not for him, whether you are an enthusiast or an industry figure, our landscape would be inexplicably unrecognisable.
Thank you, old friend. It’s been a pleasure.
