"threaten our collective freedoms to listen, learn, create, and connect"
Um, sorry, but I have trouble accepting that statement.
It is not because your competition has a strong platform that it is stifling freedom, creation and learning. As for connecting, take your grievances to FaceBook.
I'm not defending Apple in any way shape or form, but my liberty to learn, create and share does not depend on Apple's good will and benevolence. There are other means and platforms to use, and Spotify will not be able to transform this in a meeting at OK Corral. If Spotify dies, Apple will not take over the world.
I understand that lawyers have to build a case, but saying that Apple is the guardian of freedom and creation is going a bit too far.
And, as far as learning is concerned, there's Curiosity Stream, Brilliant, TED talks, SciShow, Geographics and hundreds more.
Sorry, Spotify, you're on shifting sands if you go down that route.
