Mobile music service rejects Canada, blames fees

Spotify, Pandora, Rhapsody, MOG, Thumbplay.

Millions of people in the United States and Europe are using these and other services to stream music to their mobile devices.

For monthly fees ranging from free to $15 (usually depending on whether you're willing to pay to avoid embedded advertisements), users can choose from millions of songs — simply type in the name of a tune and enjoy it anywhere there's a decent cell signal.

But in Canada, the idea is barely getting off the ground, and one of the biggest players in the industry is blaming royalties sought by major record labels.

"These rates … are astronomical," Tim Westergren, founder of California-based Pandora wrote in an email to The Canadian Press.

"As long as rights societies take this approach, they will prevent Pandora from launching to Canadian users."

And greedy record labels is why we can't have nice things in Canada.
