That is impressive, but they have worked hard for it. Spotify is a great service I have subscribed to every now and then when my music collection is out of action. I'm sure I'll subscribe again in the future somepoint.

They still got some markets to expand to



Expand to Germany last month (3rd biggest in the world)

Japan (2nd biggest...but this one will be very HARD to get license)

South Korea is a good market to expand into.


Spotify is seeking VC funding that value it at $4 billion USD.

Itunes to launch a Spotify-like service before the end of this year.

How likely? (in term of %)

I would say 80%
