After Taylor Swift Slams Apple for Not Paying Artists, Company Changes Its Tune
Less than a day after Taylor Swift wrote an open letter to Apple, slamming them for not paying royalties to artists during a three-month trial period of its new streaming music service, the media giant has caved to the pop star.
Taylor revealed on Tumblr why she was withholding her 1989 album from apple music: “Three months is a long time to go unpaid, and it is unfair to ask anyone to work for nothing. We don't ask you for free iPhones. Please don't ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation.”
Apple quickly changed its tune, with Eddy Cue, an apple executive, tweeting: "We hear you @taylorswift13 and indie artists. Love, Apple” and “#AppleMusic will pay artist for streaming even during customer’s free trial period.”
Looks like there's no more bad blood.
