Bandcamp, Spotify and the wide-open future | npr

A fascinating dive into the mentality differences between Bandcamp and Spotify. Spoiler: Bandcamp comes out looking a lot more positive, particularly for artists.

Also that they used to be able to see people coming to Bandcamp from Google searches for torrents and p2p sites, then buying the album. More fuel to the fire that is "piracy is often about access, not theft".
