I don't mind if people want to pay for my photography. But if you choose a license that allows for the relatively free usage of your work, you have no right to complain if someone takes you up on your offer and complies to the license completely.
The policy basically says: "Don't like these terms, don't use Spotify", also the settings page of Spotify doesn't allow you to opt in or out of anything, except the sharing with third parties, which had been there for a while.
I don't care what this CEO says. I canceled my Spotify account, because this was a giant breach into my privacy.
Most of my photos are released under CC-BY, a decision I didn't take lightly. And some of them have been used in commercial settings (there's a webshop selling fridge magnets of photos of mine, and several have appeared in magazines and online articles (including one in a cracked.com article)). It just makes for a more interesting line on my resume: "Internationally published photographer" instead of "Hobbyist fool with a camera".
I'd love to have one of my photos used as the cover of a book/map. I'd buy a copy of that, instantly, or at first ask if I could get one for free.
Impeaching this sockpuppet will not change anything. US Congress is in the pocket of commercial interests, and will need a serious amount of overhaul before it becomes healthy again. And I don't think this will be possible without a certain amount of bloodshed.
