TIDAL Controversy Rages On

Insider trade mag Hits Daily Double adds cautionary skepticism to the NY Post's Page Six conspiracy theory against Jay Z's Tidal music service. 

HDD cites an unnamed Sony Music source as saying the label group is allowing Tidal to use its music while negotiating a deal that’s considered industry standard—and very similar to the terms of their deals with iTunes, Spotify, and other streaming services. 

As to whether Apple is playing hardball ahead of the Beats Music re-launch in June, it's anyone's guess. What is true is that Post gossip columnist Emily Smith's sensational claims have loosened a lot of tied tongues, and swung Jay from playing defensive to running an offensive game.
