Spotify is Being Sued for $1.6 Billion by a Music Publisher

Spotify is Being Sued for $1.6 Billion by a Music Publisher Wixen Music Publishing handles music for Tom Petty, Neil Young, Stevie Nicks and others. They are suing the music streaming company over claims that Spotify doesn't have the proper music licenses. “Prior to launching in the United States, Spotify attempted to license sound recordings by working with record labels but, in a race to be first to market, made insufficient efforts to collect the required musical composition information..." "...and, in turn, failed in many cases to license the compositions embodied within each recording or comply with the requirements of Section 115 of the Copyright Act." Spotify already filed court papers questioning whether or not Wixen's clients chose to be included in the lawsuit. Spotify has yet to comment on the matter.
