Music streaming giant Spotify has published its content policies, which have not been changed, and said it would add a content advisory to any podcasts discussing Covid-19. The move comes after a backlash over a recent episode of prominent vaccine skeptic Joe Rogan, which prompted musicians Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, as well as some other artists, to pull their works off the platform. Plus, China's factory activity slowed in January as Covid lockdowns weighed on manufacturing and demand.
