Legal For all the complaints that Spotify was taking too long to reach the US, they did in the end persevere. However, Spotify has just been rewarded with a patent infringement lawsuit for its troubles. Frankly, why should anyone else even bother?

Actually, no. In Jun 15 billion tracks were sold on iTunes. If we are optimistic, and set the track price to $1 (which is not correct, because a lot of people buy albums)

$15,000,000,000 * 0.0001 = $1,500,000

Or 1.5 million dollars. Which is a lot of money for you or me, but not one of the largest, or even largest music retailer.

So, let's hope for Apple they do a bit better ;) .

OTOH, iTunes was meant to tie people into the iPod and later iPhone ecosystem anyway...
