The media and blogosphere reaction to Apple Music was mixed at best. Bob Lefsetz, who has written about the music business for over 25 years, says:
Bob is making a very common mistake: He assumes that Apple Music is a product aiming to win market share in the existing music streaming market. Bob’s focus is then on how Apple Music’s features and pricing compare with the competition.
Apple Music provides nothing new other than a live radio service, which is mildly interesting, but never forget that iTunes Radio didn’t put a dent in Pandora.
