And Here Come Another Round Of Yawn-Inducing Music Subscription Services
from the too-little-control dept
The problem with all of these subscription services is that they inherently need to have limits. You have to keep paying, you can't really share music with others, you may be able to take some of your music on the go, but it's usually a convoluted process. And that's a problem. Because people understand how mp3s work -- and that's without restrictions. Trying to get people to pay for a music experience with restrictions, that offers less than what they know can be done, is a recipe for failure. It's time to stop thinking of trying to "sell music" and start realizing how you can use music to sell something better.
