Spotify is great, Apple and Google want it
There is a rumors about that Apple is interested in talks with top executives at European music share site Spotify, want to buy the service. This would not be the first music site Apple has bought out.
on the other side, According to TechCrunch, Google was considering acquiring Spotify a few months ago, but gave up on the pursuit due to the streaming music service’s ‘grandfathering’ agreement with the major labels. Basically, what this entailed was that if any company acquired the startup, all the agreements it currently holds with the major record labels falls away.
This made Spotify virtually useless to Google, outside of acquiring the brilliant tech and engineering talent behind the startup. Google and Spotify’s deal was being discussed around the same time that Apple was buying another music service known as LaLa.
