So far, Spotify has managed to fend off most of the creators’ criticisms: the creators popularized the monthly subscription business model that revitalized the music recording business, and it’s one of the biggest sources of income for rightsholders, making $ 1 billion per quarter paid year. However, the pandemic has made these issues more pressing and the Rogan controversy will bring new challenges. Even platforms like YouTube and Facebook are struggling to balance free speech (and the need for an audience) with a level of corporate responsibility, and Spotify may have a tougher time ahead. In response to the #MuteRKelly movement, the company said two years ago it would no longer include certain artists’ music on its playlists – and reversed the decision within a month. Now the company could find itself in a no-profit situation: Rogan’s fans have complained that Spotify did not upload past episodes with far-right guests Milo Yiannopoulos and Gavin McInnes.
In the long run, Spotify may have to get used to being viewed less as a startup and more as one of the “ultimate capitalist monsters” like Google and Facebook Jim McDermott, a longtime major label manager who now acts as a digital marketing consultant for artists. “It’s about making a profit for your shareholders.”
