Opinions On Spotify?

Basically, what are you thoughts? Could be on the rate of pay per rstream, lack of older/more underground songs available, or its positives rsuch as exposure how it can link in with other revenue streams.

I've taken an extra module of Music Publishing at uni this year, its got me thinking about the posi/neg's of Spotify. One of the most confusing things, is the rate per stream. Its generally accepted that its 0.00085 per stream, but due the to the lack of transparency spotify provide, reports of 0.085 and even 0.16 are going around . . .

From a monetary point of view, thats pretty fucking terrible if we take the generally accepted rate. There's that famous story of Gaga getting a cheque for $160 (cant be bothered to convert to ?). Im not sure how much truth is in this, and there are reports of higher amounts for less played artists, but thats seems a little pointless right?

Or is it? I mean with the advent of illegal downloading, which is unstoppable, It might just be another good way for artists to get exposure in a tough climate? Making money of selling physical or digital copies is now looked upon as being below Tour/Merch as a revenue source, these can change depending on your popularity/demographic.
