Hi there,

your Spotify subscribption gives you a license to the tracks, you don't own them. You can only listen to Spotify tracks from within Spotify.

That is not really true. 

 

On an iPod Touch you can use Spotify since it has a supported Spotify application. On all other iPods, you can only use Spotify to sync local files which you already own, not any content from the Spotify online catalogue.

No, Spotify is a streaming service, not a downloads one, so you never actually own the content in your Spotify library. 

If Spotify allowed you to transfer content outside of the service, there would be no way to prevent piracy and make sure that artists are fairly compensated for all their track plays.
