Yeah, but you've got to give someone incentive to host the software that will track such things, and you've got to incentivize the actual streaming of the actual media files. You can either do that distributed (thus, bittorrent) or centralized... and if you're centralizing, how is it any different from Spotify?

Create a peer-to-peer streaming service with monetization and the music industry is effectively dead forever.
