Music industry blogger Bob Lefsetz has called for the barriers to Spotify’s launch to be removed in the US, harking back to a TechCrunch post from last year explaining how US users could access it through the back door – and the huge number of comments that it sparked. “What we’ve got here is demand. For a legal service. Not yet launched in America,” he writes. “Isn’t this how the music industry got in trouble? By refusing to deliver what the public wanted? First with Napster, then with DRM-free tunes? Eventually the music business comes around, even stopping the dreaded RIAA suits. Why wait now? Why not allow Spotify to launch and ride the wave. Which for all we know may have the lifespan of MySpace, Spotify being superseded by even a better service.”
