The music streaming service Spotify has announced a new, one-month ban on new albums and other music releases.
The ban will apply to all releases for the next month, and applies to all new releases that were made in the previous month.
In addition, all releases made between July 1, 2018, and August 31, 2018 will be blocked for six months.
Spotify previously announced it was making the changes in the hopes of limiting piracy.
Spotify’s CEO Daniel Ek said at the time that Spotify was going after people who “are abusing their power by downloading music, ripping it off, selling it for a profit.”
Spotify was founded in 2009 by Sam Cassell.
The service is the biggest streaming music service in the world and is currently available in over 100 countries and territories.
