Assuming profit maximization

This article on Taylor Swift’s decision to withdraw her music from Spotify focuses on profit maximization as a primary motive for Taylor Swift’s decision. The article raises issues of equity as Spotify requires all artists to include their music in both the paid and free tiers, against Taylor Swift’s request that her music be included only¬† in the paid tier. It also provides an example of price discrimination: through Spotify, you have access to music with adverts for free but without adverts for a fee.
