Spotify : Spotted & Banned by Oxford University

The famous Oxford University IT department has come to a decision to ban Spotify as it uses P2P technology. Despite being legal, Spotify was declared to be brewing a network due to its P2P facet.


Spotify is a digital market which facilites an access to an enormous library of ad-supported music. They charge a minimal amount monthly. Thousands and thousands of users are logged onto it and specially the young generation.

The Oxford University, IT department states : “Spotify is a music streaming service. It relies on a peer-to-peer system for distribution of content, and its use is therefore forbidden on the University network.”

The local IT manager claimed that Spotify is a not “educational” and hence cannot be legally allowed to students and adhering to it would be a mark of wastage of tax-payers money.

Obviously many others didn’t share the same opinion. Some students value Spotify and swear by it for work and pleasure. Others were astounded by such a decision and found it to be futile.


Whereas Spotify is being praised in Sweden for its partial contribution to the decade’s rise in music sale, here in Oxford they are on the opposite side of the though process. Everyone has their own opinion.

Spotify has not yet responded to the ban by Oxford University.

Let’s wait for the cyclone to hit and then we see the counteractions!
