Spotify updates client, blocks countries by IP address

It looks like tricks will no longer fool the Spotify client – it was until recently possible to create an account over a tunnel to a UK IP address and set your country to UK, in order to access a lot of the blocked content that people in certain countries are not allowed to listen to, based on the whims of the copyright holders.

I guess I’ll have to cancel my paid subscription – it was a tit-for-tat as far as I was concerned, willing to pay but only if they allowed a loophole. Bye Spotify, we hardly knew ya!

    You could continue to browse news over a remote desktop… and plug the remote PC’s audio output into the line in jack and stream it back as a shoutcast… ;)

    Try iPig free proxy server and client… you can decide which ports, or all, to redirect through the remote server. You can turn the redirector on and off with a click. Perhaps you can continue to fool the spotify client this way?

    You could also use a proxy located in UK :)
