According to the website Hits Daily Double, Spotify's deals with rights holders are ending in 2015, which could force the music streamer to try and convert more users into paying customers, rather than allowing them unlimited access to the basic free service.
Apparently, the capping proposal could become a strong bargaining chip when negotiating new deals, allowing Spotify to continue to operate in an increasingly competitive market.
Thoughts on this? How would it affect you? Are you a free user who'd upgrade, or would you go elsewhere for your music?
It wouldn't make any difference to me as a premium user for a number of years, but I'm interested in the opinions of others.
