Download your Spotify music using the Pirate Bay
Artists and other copyright holders who feel left out: you should have and should allow your fans to give you money. Straight away. No record companies, no DRM, no hassles. If you want to discuss about a sensible replacement for copyright, you are welcome. But first make sure we can directly give you money rather than having to pay some of the terrorists in the music industry.
To Spotify: make your client as fast as my local server, again. Make sure the iOS and Android clients run as smoothly as the Symbian client. Remove the Facebook requirement. Communicate how large a cut actually gets to the artists. You have had, in the past, a sublime product and actually got me to pay for music. Your service level has declined. The application is as large and lump as iTunes right now. Sorry.
NOTE: You need to be a premium user to use this service.
