Is it legal to rip music from Spotify?
This is a grey area as the concept has not been tested in court. However it legal to record from internet radio and it could be said that Spotify is type of internet radio. However although it may be legal it is against Spotifys end user agreement which states:
“…copy, reproduce, “rip”, record, make available to the public or otherwise use any part of the Spotify Software Application or the Spotify Service or its content (including but not limited to tracks, images and text) in a manner not expressly permitted under this Agreement…”
There is no way for Spotify to know that you have ripped music from its service unless you post that you have done so on a public place ie. the internet. Therefore your account is safe as long as you keep what you do to yourself. Please be aware of this before you download any of the free and legal programs to rip music from Spotify.
