Taylor Tweets, Apple Beats Swift Retreat

After Taylor Swift’s Criticism, Apple Will Pay Royalties in Trial Period – The New York Times.

Who would have thought a few years ago that Country-turned-pop star and super successful Manhattan penthouse owner Taylor Swift would stand up for not only her own financial rights, but those of Indie bands and music companies? Reminiscent of Tom Petty. She did. With the power of Twitter she forced Apple’s Eddy Cue to cue up a new arrangement over the weekend that pays artists during the 3 month “trial period” of Apple’s new streaming music service. Go Taylor.
