The latest news is that Wixen Music Publishing has filed a $1.6 Billion lawsuit against Spotify for copyright infringement. The suite cites artists like Tom Petty, Neil Young, Janis Joplin, Journey, Weezer, The Doobie Brothers, Santana, and many more.
Wixen is claiming that Spotify is using music without a proper licences or appropriate compensation. We’ll have to wait and see what comes of this. But, it could mean the end of Spotify.
