Taylor Swift is again making headlines but it may not be for what you expect. Taylor with a dispute with Apple music said in essence the following: Please don’t expect us to accept music play with no compensation. Swift in a letter to Apple executive indicated her unhappiness with the policy of Apple of allowing users to stream music with no compensation. Swift is unhappy with the lack of compensation for her album 1989. Apple has announced that it will now reimburse artists for the trial period.“I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company,” the 25 year old Swift said in a mention to Apple.

The music industry has supported Swift and wishes the music industry to compensate artists for paid streaming. Swift further went on that 3 months was a long time to go unpaid, thus Apple had a change of heart and decided to compensate consumers. The music industry has agreed with paying artists 70 percent of the proceeds of their albums.This is one of the things that unfortunately will be passed down to consumers.
