Thanks for explaining the actual situation in detail - very much appreciated. It makes me wonder if one of the obstacles facing European streaming services trying to enter the US isn't actually due to existing conflicts. Out of curiosity, do you know the geographical extent of Apple's streaming service? Also I believe that Spotify is based in Sweden, yet they are readily available in the US. Perhaps it boils down to waving dollar bills at the record label executives.
Strictly my own opinions and not necessarily those of my employer or pet monkey.
Well, Spotify may be geographically based in Sweden but the ownership is now American.
No idea about anything from Apple. But again, American.
Much easier to extend an American service to other countries than have the other countries set the running.
As this thread is about Qobuz I suspect that it getting to America will be , um, difficult.
is that labels won't sell what people want to buy.
But, at least I am used to it.
" labels won't sell what people want to buy."
Because they may not be able to due to contractual restraints or regulatory restriction. Often in these situations the gain to ne made from the transaction can be outweighed by the risk of action being taken, for example by the DoJ in the USA or the European Court of Justice over here.
This is all a great game for lawyers.
