Spotty information about Spotify - but this wikipedia entry indicates that the lead developer, Ludvig Strigeus, is known for, among other things,  developing the BitTorrent client uTorrent.  One of the problems that any music startup faces is how to deliver music without going broke paying for bandwidth -  P2P is one way to deal with that , so perhaps there's a  little uTorrent at the core of Spotify. 

Hi dude. I know the Spotify founder (Daniel) and he has told me they are cooperating with Bram Cohen and BitTorrent Inc. If I remember it correctly, he also said they have developed a new protocol (probably based on BitTorrent?). At least, it sure is a P2P thing.
