TIDAL would have inflated the numbers to subscribers and to listen in streaming: the service deny it and start the investigations
Tidal has announced to have given way to investigations for corporate data stolen and obtained by a newspaper in Norwegian, reports Variety. The Dagens Næringsliv has accused the music service in streaming of having inflated the number of subscribers that the reproductions of important album in the exclusive, such as Lemonade Beyonce and Life Of Pablo and Kanye West. The published data were found on the hard drive that the newspaper has obtained in ways that are still unclear.
TIDAL is clearly defending himself from the accusations, and reported that it had started an investigation to discover how they leaked these valuable business data. "We reject and deny what is reported by Dagens Næringsliv. When we learned of a potential breach in our data, we have promptly begun to follow and more roads to find out what happened," said the CEO of TIDAL, Richard Snaders in a statement released to Variety.
The service streaming will also launch legal action, and has hired an outside company to cybersecurity to “make a revision on what happened and to improve the safety and integrity of the data“.
The allegations of the newspaper Norwegian you might build and then on real data, but this has not been confirmed. Just to give you an idea, however, it is possible to make an example. TIDAL has announced that the Life Of Pablo, Kanye West has been streamed 250 million times in the first 10 days of availability. Considering that at the time the subscribers were 3 million, should we think that, in order to obtain the result press release from the company, every subscriber has listened to the entire album 8 times a day.
