Exploring bounty and spread: key changes in the Danish music streaming economy

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This article analyses the structural effects of the transition from the sale of music in physical and digital form to the access-based business model of music streaming. The global music streaming market is currently maturing rapidly, and as early adap-tors, the Nordic countries provide early indications of the consequences of this shift. The article builds on existing research in the cultural industries and 'the industrial information economy' (Benkler 2006) and seeks to provide knowledge on the im-pact of music streaming on the Danish market for recorded music. Central to this topic are new consumption patterns, business models, and principles for royalty payments.
