Online Music – Just the Way I Like It pt 2: Fat Fucking Chance

| 0 comments

Sigh. Yep, it was too good to be true. In the end of last year I wrote this entry about how I’ve finally found an on-line music service that works like I want to called Spotify. Streaming music, a huge catalogue, a simple interface and a way to pay for the music.

I started paying attention that I couldn’t find some bands that really should be in the service anymore and what do you know. They are implementing region restrictions, because they don’t have rights to deliver all the songs and bands to every country.

Region-fucking-restrictions in a service that works globally, because the fucking labels can’t get their arse off the 1960’s. Fuck this shit.

Well, it remains to be seen how long will I continue paying the subscription fee. It really depends on how many times I run into a situation where I don’t find the music I’d like to listen to. This idiocy gets me livid, though. If the industry model seems to actively drive people to downloading stuff illegally, they are not allowed to say word one to complain about it.

I hope Spotify won’t die before it gets properly born, because damn – for the time I’ve used it, it’s been a really fucking excellent service. I won’t be abandoning it yet, though – because now more than ever services like this need support from the users.
