Spotify Music Not Available for Download

The only downside to Spotify is that you can only listen to the music through Spotify. If having a variety of music is your goal, then Spotify is the program for you. However Spotify is not compatible with any other music player. You cannot export music from Spotify to iTunes or any other music program. You can import your iTunes playlists onto Spotify, but you cannot export your Spotify playlists to iTunes.

The reasons for these restrictions has to do with Spotify's licensing agreements. Spotify operates by providing legal access to music and they do this by making agreements with the major record labels. These deals give Spotify access to an extensive music catalogue and they make sure that the artists are being fairly compensated for their music. Spotify pays royalties based on how many plays a song receives, which means they need to be able to keep track of the specific number.

This is why Spotify does not allow downloading of their music, because once the music is off of Spotify's server, they have no way of tracking the number of plays a song receives and making sure the artist gets fair compensation. Unlike music stores, Spotify does not offer artists a flat rate for their music, instead the artists get paid every single time a song is played. This is one of the reasons Spotify can give the listener access to so much awesome music, but it also the reason that Spotify is a streaming-only site.
