According to a Digital Music News report citing unnamed sources, [Spotify] is most likely to make the change sometime early next year. But the sources warn that the modalities have yet to be worked out, and a number of different plans are currently under consideration. Apparently, the streaming-music giant is deliberating whether to make entire albums inaccessible to non-paying users, or to have a system where they’re still able to access some songs from a particular album. Time-limited exclusivity is also an option. The report suggests the final implementation could even be a combination of the above approaches. – Pulkit Chandna, TechHive
