A few years ago two men from Sweden created a new music service. The idea was to spread music from the major record dealers to the consumer. The creators called this program Spotify. The service started with a small user group and to get access to the program you had to get invited by one of the people using the program or buy the premium account. The free version came with commercial breaks, which allowed the user to use the program for free. In writing moment there are also two paid services, one for 49kr and the other for 99kr a month. When paying for the service the commercial was removed and also extra features such as early releases and possibilities to play Spotify on a cell phone also comes with the premium accounts.
By having a big source of music and both having famous artists such as Lady Gaga, Iron Maiden and Michael Jackson they manage to attract many consumers who happily listens to commercial to get their music for free.
