CrunchWeek: Taylor Swift Shakes Off Spotify, Sean Rad Will get Demoted

Taylor Swift Leaves Spotify & Sean Rad Will get Demoted at Tinder

This week we diverted from our regular strategy to filming CrunchWeek with three hosts from our San Francisco workplace. As an alternative, New York-based mostly TechCrunchers Jordan Criminal and Anthony Ha Skyped in to talk about Taylor Swift eradicating her again catalog of music from Spotify and Sean Rad’s removing from the CEO place at Tinder.

As an alternative of meandering round subjects for quarter-hour, we obtained proper to the core of the problems this week: can artists push again towards the huge shift in consumer conduct from shopping for songs and albums to paying for limitless music subscriptions? How does management at Tinder have an effect on progress? And what does it imply when IAC says they need a CEO like Eric Schmidt?
