it's pretty hilarious that deezer, a music streaming service known for how easy it is to straight up download music from because of the laughable security, is owned by an investment firm which also owns 86% of Warner Music Group

basically, they are financing the piracy of the music owned by another company they are financing


as per usual I am pretty sure they are aware of this, but are also aware that:

1. cutting this off would decimate the subscriber count of deezer
2. most people downloading stuff off deezer with a paid account instead of just ripping from YouTube is doing so to get FLACs - which they don't have a competing marketplace for
3. point 2 is a great source for statistics on if it's viable to launch said marketplace or not
