    I have spotify premium and have been able to download music and convert it for use elsewhere using itunes. I am assuming this is legal. I don't seem to be able to do this anymore.
    Have purchased Spotify Noteburner converter but an error message appears when before installation complete.
    I am not tech savvy, I just want to buy a song and download it. Any simple suggestions.

    Where else do you want to play music ? Your cell phone is always with you. And most new cars have bluetooth capability.

    To my knowledge iTunes wouldn't be able to see Spotify's proprietary files for its downloaded music.

    As to the Spotify Converter, that is for sure not a legal software as it's designed to invade the policies of Spotify's services.

    As to adding to a video, you cannot just simply add copyright music. You need to get expressed permission from the artist/company that owns the song.

    Our office did a video with the Benny Hill theme music and it was taken down because the song is copyrighted.

    To buy music, buy from iTunes.

    Thanks, I appreciate the straight forward answer. I used to use itunes but was told it was no longer available for PC downloads when I bought my new laptop.
