In defense of Spotify

I just saw via a Daring Fireball post that a music exec says the music from Spotify is –

The income from Spotify is MICROSCOPIC – LAUGHABLE – PATHETIC.

Yet how come all the rap acts/bands and CDs I saw and purchased in 2010 were a direct result of me checking them out on Spotify?

And all the acts I want to see in 2011 at gigs and festivals have all been on rotation via my Spotify at some point.

I buy more music and see more gigs because of Spotify.

Oh and if your music is rubbish I will find out on Spotify before wasting my time on your over priced CD and waaayy over-priced digital album.

Step up or step off.
