Apple gives in to "Swift" pressure

Eddy Cue took to twitter late Sunday night to announce that Apple will indeed now pay artists for their streaming content during the free three month period of Apple Music.

Peter Kafka spoke with Apple’s exec Cue and has posted a stream of updates at ReCode.

Tonight, Apple media boss Eddy Cue appears to have capitulated. “#AppleMusic will pay artist [sic] for streaming, even during customer’s free trial period,” Cue wrote on Twitter, without elaborating about who Apple would pay, or how much, or any other detail.

Who said Apple doesn’t know how to use social?
