This article asserts that without an open internet we wouldn't have "the amazing array of legal, licensed services that artists use every day to reach audiences, and yes, get paid". Problem is, artists continue to be exploited and do not get paid as we have seen with the recent Spotify debate. We now see more clearly that these "creative entrepreneurs" are in fact the problem. Ultimately, what is more important than easy access to music and what format the music is distributed on, is that we need more regulation to uphold artists rights in the digital age. Rachel Allen needs to be discussing how the evolution of the internet and the rise of streaming services, once again, keep these savvy corporate tech heads rich, whilst the musicians remain at the bottom of the heap!
