this is a idea about a new subscription type for Spotify, that will reduce the problems people have of loosing their favorite music. The subscription, based on Premium is called Spotify Libration. The name 'Liberation' means freedom to use their favorite music. Liberation should cost about 199 SEK per month, but several advantages is bundled to the price.
A user who is subscribed to the Liberation subscription will every month get 20 unique track download bundles. The system will, based on the users preference, propose a selection of songs based on his plays and starred songs each 30 days (or at menu option). The 20 songs will automatically be MP3's and thus the user will never loose his absolute favorites if the label takes it down. Throughout the years, I it seems Spotify has received a high number of users complaining loosing their true favorite songs. It feels not good.
I was in a talk with Swedish Radio about the risk of loosing favorite music in November 22th, 2010, and learned from the discussion with the local consumer experts that there is no gurantee you ever will be supplied with music when subscription to services like this. As people virtually can buy a one year premium account, and two days later get their library of songs deleted without no further possible, it can be real risk to use services like this. You can hear the discussion (in Swedish) here.
Spotify Liberation is my idea of how this should be resolved. People will pay twice as a premium cost but will get a gurantee that they will keep the music they really desire. The subscription model is similar to eMusic and would be very good addition to the services as the pricing is competetive to the existing services of that kind.
