Who this policy is going to kill however is the small artist that is barely making ends meet. The ones that don't move millions of copies. The ones that appeal to a specific subset of people. You know, the stuff that isn't mass produced crap which would fall in to the area most music lovers would call "good music" if it happens to land in their preferred genre.

Why? Do you think consumers will stop listening to them after 3 months?

Big name artists have had more than 3 months visibility to build followers. The 3 free months eat their profit . Less known artists can ride their coattails. The 3 free months helps them gains new followers.

Or maybe you believe in broken windows and a 3-month loss won't be be worth the future gain no matter the conversion rate.

No, your comment is what is misleading.

Well, "turn on" seems pretty misleading. Is the system already installed and programmed? Does it only needs the flip of a switch? Is this a case of pot: kettle?

Infact, the only reason I am here is because the headline seems shady and nothing in the summary details how close from active the system was. Could you enlighten us, please?
