  1. I disagree that the catalogues are finite, the web has shown that there is more music coming online everyday. There will always be more music than we could ever possibly consume. In terms of existing catalogues, sure, Led Zeppelin’s formal catalogue is finite. But when you think of all of the concert footage, exclusive performances, edits, etc. You see that it’s not. There will always be those extras which services like Spotify will not be able to manage.
