question re: ad funded web apps a la Spotify...

Playing with Spotify, its a pretty cool service (don't know if it's the saviour of the music business yet) but i have the same question that i have for all of these ad-funded apps.

What happens when the advertisers pull out? People are ignoring the ads in Spotify the same way they are ignoring them in most other media.

Everything I read about Spotify includes something along the lines of 'the user only has to put up with an ad every 25mins..'
The ad funded model suits the users and the developer
but wheres the value for the advertiser?
