This is how :

....... "can be accessed (i) as an ad-supported free-to-the-user service having no monthly cap on listening hours or a cap on number of plays of a unique track during the first 6 months following creation of your Spotify account but thereafter a cap of 10 listening hours per month and a cap of 5 plays per unique track (the "Free Service"), (ii) as an advertisement free version of the Spotify Service for which you pay a monthly or yearly subscription (the "Unlimited Service"), (iii) as an advertisement free version of the Spotify Service including an offline mode which makes it possible to listen to music without a connection to the Internet via conditional downloads and other additional features for which you pay a monthly or yearly subscription (the "Premium Service"), and (iv) as a version of the Spotify Service that provides access to aspects of the Spotify Service via a supported mobile handset". ..................

Which means that they cram your bandwidth with ads and you have to be online to listen via some sort of a client like a web/browser type and that is it. There are countless other services like that. The form of micro payments galore.....

they're hoping for is to attract you to the service than lock you in and eventually annoy enough so you start forking the cash in small doses so you think it is OK but eventually you'll pay more and the amount will become obscene once you start adding them up.

Like millions of "iTunes" store suckers for $0.99 but before you know it you've paid for thousands of them and having none. Selling vapor, you end up perpetually paying for per use/view/listen.

Hardly a free stuff. There is no such thing as free lunch/beer/ <insert your favorite description here>. Guess what, the actual broadcast radio station is still free option.

Cheers

And more crap very much like those KAZAA swindlers

"Spotify has a right to allow the Spotify Software Application and the Spotify Service to utilize the processor, bandwidth and storage hardware on your computer or other relevant device for the limited purpose of facilitating the communication and transmission of content and other data or features to you and other users of the Spotify Software Application and the Spotify Service, and to facilitate the operation of the network on which the Spotify Software Application and the Spotify Service runs.

So in a nutshell, they gonna use your cpu/bandwidth/storage/electricity to peddle this free stuff to not just you but other "free" users.

Is it still free?
