‘Spotify Teardown’ book sparking controversy before release
Posted on: 9 octobre 2017, by : Stuart Dredge

A team funded by the Swedish Research Council are writing a book about Spotify’s history, but ‘Spotify Teardown: Inside the Black Box of Streaming Music’ is already creating controversy in the service’s homeland.
The book is due to come out next year, the tenth anniversary of Spotify’s commercial launch. The controversy is less about the researchers’ claim that Spotify used ‘pirate’ MP3 files as a source in its early days, and more about the team’s attempts to understand Spotify’s recommendations by creating hundreds of fake ‘bot’ users, as well as to experiment with manipulating the system.
