I don't think Spotify is going to shoot itself in the knee and raise prices.


That's ridiculous? Why should I spend 10 euros on music that is not even heard and streamed? If the subscription is gone, so is the music!
And banning cracks won't do much, there will be new ones soon.

Fool. 10 euros a month is very cheap for the selection you havest!
