Apple in swift U-turn after fearless Taylor demands money for music

Apple Music has made a swift U-turn on its payment policy for streamed music after mega-selling artist Taylor Swift refused the company permission to stream her album ’1989.’

In an open letter to Apple she said she was unhappy with the three-month free trial period offered to subscribers.

She added “Three months is a long time to go unpaid, and it is unfair to ask anyone to work for nothing. We don’t ask you for free IPhones. Please don’t ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation.”

Apple Music, which launches on June 30, will now pay artists during the trial period.
