I've been following Pandora's latest saga. It affects way more people than just Pandora.

Some people are speculating that Pandora is loudly complaining in hopes of still getting the rule changed.

But as Pandora's managers point out, this moves them deeply into the financial loss column, where they had been showing some income.

I wouldn't write Pandora off yet. But you'll see them attempt to wring more advertising dollars out of their site.

Although the same rule affects last.fm, they're better positioned to weather this change.

First, they are now owned by CBS, so some of that money is just going from one pocket to the other pocket, and may not be entirely viewed as a loss by CBS.

Second, (IMHO) last.fm has way more content to get people clicking on their web page. More clicks == More $$.

On Pandora, people just set-it-and-forget-it, and don't go back to the Pandora page very often. I actually enjoy browsing through last.fm's information about the bands and the songs. And, if I'm not mistaken, last.fm users provide most of their content for free.

I found the Sabayon Last.fm room by chance and thought there'd be a topic here.

http://www.last.fm/user/earfolds

Open to friend requests and whatever.

I wanted to use Pandora, but by the time I got the chance, it was blocked to the UK. Bit of a blow for me, but it kind of pales in comparison to this issue of royalties. I didn't think it would affect Last.FM much, seeing as though they've welcomed paying bands for each track listen with open arms, but I'll remain cautious. Even if Last.FM goes down, I'm sure Audioscrobbler will survive, which is my favourite half of Last.FM anyway.
