Is ripping streamed music illegal?

It's gray area. Stream (like Spotify)/radio ripping is nothing new as far as we know it’s totally legal to record streams from analog or Internet radios.  Nobody has ever been tried in court for this matter. However you may need to check in certain parts of the world with more restrictive laws.

Will I get banned from Spotify for ripping streamed music?

It is impossible for sites and applications like Spotify to know that you are doing this, however ripping music does go against Spotify's terms of service. If you were to publicly announce that you were doing it in some way then they would have every right to ban you. But apart from this they could never know.

If I’m ripping music from Spotify do I risk getting banned from using their service?
