Pandora starts doing geolocation

This entry was posted by on Sunday, 6 May, 2007 at

Well I guess it was just a matter of time before Pandora started blocking people outside the US instead of just simply counting on people’s honesty to provide their true zip-code and not just a random US one to fake their way in.

Dear Pandora Visitor,

We are deeply, deeply sorry to say that due to licensing constraints, we can no longer allow access to Pandora for most listeners located outside of the U.S. We will continue to work diligently to realize the vision of a truly global Pandora, but for the time being we are required to restrict its use. We are very sad to have to do this, but there is no other alternative.

We believe that you are in Japan (your IP address appears to be 121.xxx.xxx.xxx). If you believe we have made a mistake, we apologize and ask that you please contact us at pandora-support@pandora.com

It’s really too bad, because it’s simply a brilliant service – I wish they would speed up the licensing agreement proceedings in different parts of the world, but even then, I guess Japan will be very very late. I mean, even Last.fm in Japan blocks the radio function (although using the English client and English homepage in Japan works fine). Anyway, I just signed up for Last FM and it looks pretty darn good. I tried it for a few days a year ago or so, but didn’t like, but now the user base seems to be much bigger and the features of the site and the standalone player have been improved greatly!
