Speech synthesis, based on artificial intelligence, makes it possible to generate spoken text from 'a written text.

The world's number one streaming platform, Spotify, will change the way it pays artists in 2024, by introducing a minimum number of plays to be entitled to remuneration, he announced on Tuesday.

Spotify's compensation system will evolve to meet three imperatives: further discourage artificial streaming, better distribute small payments that do not reach artists, and put a brake on those who try to game the system by relying on non-musical noises, explains the company on its website intended for artists.

By addressing each of these issues, Spotify estimates it can generate approximately US$1 billion (C$1.37 billion) in additional revenue for emerging and professional artists over the next five years.

Starting in early 2024, the platform will introduce a minimum of 1000 plays over 12 months to generate a payment.

Spotify explains that below this threshold, the titles currently generate on average US$0.03 (CA$0.04) per month and are not affected by the rights holders, while in total they represent a sum of 40 million US dollars (C$54.78 million).

We're just going to use these tens of millions of dollars a year to increase payments to securities eligible, indicates the platform.

In its fight against artificial streaming, generated by robots in particular, Spotify announces that it will charge record companies and distributors for each title when blatant artificial streaming will be detected on their content. The amount of this withholding was not specified.

At the beginning of 2023, a first global study on the subject estimated that between 1% and 3% of online listening was false, according to 2021 data in France from the National Music Center (CNM).

Third evolution of its method of remuneration, Spotify will raise its conditions for the payment of royalties on listening to non-musical noises (animal sounds, nature, etc).

Titles of this kind of noise must have a duration of at least two minutes and Spotify will discuss with the holders and holders of these rights to value noise streams at a fraction of the value of music streams.

This is only “a start,” said the boss of the music distribution platform Stem, Kristin Graziani, at the beginning of November about the changes planned by Spotify, while judging that they were steps in the right direction. /p>
