Sony/ATV Chief Slams Streaming Services’ ‘Incredibly Disappointing’ Copyright Appeal

I am incredibly disappointed that Spotify and the other companies have chosen to attack songwriters by appealing the long-overdue rate increases. The move flies in the face of everything that I have fought for on behalf of songwriters for fair-market rates. Songwriters are unquestionably the most important contributors to the success of the streaming services and deserve the benefits of the new rates that we worked so hard to achieve. – Martin Bandier via Jem Aswad, Variety »
