No One Agrees What Taylor Swift's Victory Over Apple Means
Taylor Swift got Apple to change its royalty policy, but the media can't seem to agree whether or not that's a big deal.By Ben Lawson | June 22, 2015
By now you have probably heard about Taylor Swift getting Apple to change course on its royalty policy for Apple Music and agree to pay artists during its free trial period.
And as fun as it was to see the pop star claim a victory against Apple, there isn't much of a consensus on what Swift's victory actually means or if you can even call it a win at all.
This all started when Swift threatened to withhold her most recent album, "1989," from Apple Music. Less than a day later, Apple decides to pay out after all, which led to a cumulative jaw drop from the media and some pretty bad puns. (Video via Big Machine Records / Taylor Swift)
