I primarily want to use Spotify as a substitute for buying records. If I listen to only one artist one month, I want that artist to get the whole chunk of my individual subscription fee, as simple as that. There is a difference between "radio-listening" and record-listening, I think. Today Spotify works as a substitute for radio, rewarding quantity over quality-listening which I think is so wrong! Much of my subscription fee each month goes to the big sharks just because they have a bigger share of the total amount of play's.
