Indizierte Musik

Casual Listener

Gibt es eine Möglichkeit, indizierte Songs oder Alben wie z.b. JBG1 anzuhören? Die Alben sind zwar auf Spotify vorhanden, jedoch grau unterlegt und können nicht abgespielt werden. Gibt es eine Möglichkeit diese abzuspielen?

Danke!

Hey @dalla55, help's arrived. 

 

We hope you don't mind us replying in English. It sounds like there's some music you can't access right now in the app. 

 

Keep in mind that availability of music can vary over time and between countries, depending on the permissions from rights holders.

 

Spotify adds new content every day, so if you can’t find something you’re looking for right now, it may appear (or reappear) soon.

 

Hope that helps, and let us know if there's anything else 🙂

Not really,

 

i mean, some music, for example in germany, is on the "Index", its only allowed to be sold to persons who are older than 18. In Spotify these songs are in grey and can't be played. But cause I'm older than 18 and are allowed to consume such music my question is, if there is anyway to listen to such music.

Hey @dalla55,

 

Thanks for getting back to us.

 

All songs available for the German market should be available for you. Find out if you toggled on the Explicit filter. More info about this here.

 

If you don't have the explicit filter on, then you are most likely looking at songs that aren't available (anymore). They might come back in the future though.

 

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have further questions.

 

Have a nice day!

Yes, the filter is switched on. The music is in Germany available, but not public. You can buy the music if you ask for it, but it's forbidden to have the music in the store for public. You can buy the music if you ask for the music and if you are older than 18. In Spotify such music is NOT available, even if you are over 18.

Example : "Jung, brutal, gutaussehend" from Kollegah and Farid Bang, year 2009.

You can buy the music in shops if you ask for it and when you are over 18 but on Spotify it's not available.

The song you are talking about is available in Germany if you have the Explict filter turned off.

 

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have further questions.

In Germany, some albums with explicit content are "indiziert". Shops are not allowed to advertise these albums in public, but they are allowed to sell this kind of albums to people, who are over 18.

 

"Werden die betroffenen Medien in die Liste jugendgefährdender Schriften eingetragen, dürfen sie nach § 15 JuSchG im Handel nicht öffentlich ausgelegt und nur an Kunden ab 18 Jahren auf Nachfrage nach dem entsprechenden Titel abgegeben werden und in Medien, die Jugendlichen zugänglich sind, nicht beworben werden."

 

I am over 18, I can find and access the album links below via google search, but I can't play the songs in Spotify, whether the explicit button is switched on or off.

 

@Spotify Please solve this frustrating issue! Please implement a setting to enable the access to this kind of albums, if you can prove that you are over 18. Otherwise, Spotify is less free/ more censored than a normal music shop in Germany.
