Free Alternative to Spotify - Jelli

Direct link ->‌ jelli.com/lan…ing

As you know by now, Spotify has reduced its free content and is going the way of paid services.

We don't like that :-)

So here is the first one of the (currently FREE, no guarantee that they will stay so long term after all) alternatives that I will be posting - vote HOT or please reply if voted COLD.

Jelli allows listeners to “take over” a radio station and collaboratively create playlists. It’s more interactive than a Top 40 or Total Request Live type of format. There are game mechanics that award Jelli listeners the ability to “rocket” song choices to the top or bomb choices that are bad.

It is not entirely legal apparently, but you just precluded my post coming up soon :-) In the meanwhile check out my other alternatives to Spotify I have already posted in Freebies.

Voted cold....why not amalgamate all of these alternatives to spotify (_;)

How would I get all of the sites url into the link deals link?? Also, someone (could be quite like you, fussy, ha ha) might like some, hate some and vote cold because of one of many alternatives.

Plus they are all different in their way...

So you vote cold because I posted all the different alternatives differently? They are services in their own right - Spotify's action just spurred me to find out and post these for all.

But thanks for being honest anyway, I see a lot of people are voting cold with nary a comment to back it up.

Is there an alternative to this site where I can post freebies btw? I hate ungrateful people who can't vote HOT or COLD based on the deal posted. i.e. in Freebie it is either free or not. If it is FREE and doesn't appeal to me, by voting it cold I am sending the wrong message to others who may benefit from it.

Have I got this completely wrong??

Grooveshark is legal.

Use Grooveshark instead

Because it is user loaded content, there have been legal issues and there will be some in the future too no doubt.

Yeah right, Wiki and all the experts don't know what they are talking about.

From their own website, Grooveshark's T&C state amongst other things:

Indemnification, Limited Liability

You hereby indemnify and hold harmless, and upon EMG's request, defend, EMG its affiliates (and their respective directors, officers and employees) from and against any and all losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and costs) arising out of any claim, action, or proceeding brought by a third party based on: (i) a breach of any warranty, representation, covenant or obligation of yours under this Agreement; or (ii) any allegation that any User Content provided, uploaded, syndicated, linked to or authorized by or on behalf of you hereunder or EMG's or any User's use thereof violates or infringes the rights of another party. You will reimburse EMG and its affiliates on demand for any actual payments made in resolution of any liability or claim that is subject to indemnification under this Section 14, provided that EMG obtains your written consent prior to making such payments, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned. EMG shall promptly notify you of any such claim, and you shall assume control of the defense of such claim upon EMG's request. EMG shall have the right, at its expense, to participate in the defense thereof under your direction.

--

There are plenty of reasoning that will come up if you do a search to check if GrooveShark is legal. Bottom line, they transfer the liability to you, the user when you sign up. The chances of anyone pursuing you are not high, but not impossible.

Caveat Emptor.

Yes i have read all that time and time again before... But you still haven't pointed out in fact where it is an ILLEGAL service that is actually against the law to listen to music from.

The only grey area action that you could be doing as a consumer is to actually upload music..
Im assuming you don't use any online video sites like youtube do you?

Exactly the same type of product although in a different medium....

My point stands.. it IS legal to use.
