Apple Bows to Taylor Swift on Paying for All Music Streaming

Apple Inc reversed its policy and said it would now pay artists during free trials of its new Apple Music streaming service, after pop star Taylor Swift said she would hold back her latest hit album "1989" from the service.
Apple is offering users a three-month trial of its new service and had said it would not pay artists for the use of their music during that time.
Apple senior vice president Eddy Cue announced the change of heart through Twitter.
Cue tweeted "We hear you @taylorswift13 and indie artists. Love, Apple,"
The 25 year old Swift said in a Tumblr post on Sunday that she would hold back her album as she found Apple's policy of not paying artists during free trial shocking and disappointing as it would hurt young artists just starting out.
