I think this is Spotify's response to Despotify.

When Despotify was released, they had a full office going "f*ck, our business is screwed".

They could have gone the route of lawyers and trying to silence or stopping the project, but instead they just fixed the security issues that came up, and let the open source project be for a while.

And now they release this. They're trying to reach out to the open source community, but their hands are tied because of where their money's coming from.

Same reasons they have to put geographic restrictions on the music in the first place.
