Tom Petty, Neil Young Publisher Sues Spotify for $1.6 Billion
By Jon Blistein
4 hours ago
Wixen Music Publishing, which owns works by Tom Petty, Neil Young, Weezer, the Doors and more, has sued Spotify for using thousands of songs allegedly without license and compensation, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The publishing company is reportedly seeking damages worth at least $1.6 billion, plus injunctive relief.

With more than 60 million subscribers, the streaming service can make or break a song. Here's how the industry is adjusting

Wixen's lawsuit follows several lawsuits that have focused on Spotify's alleged failure to pay royalties on a song's musical composition. Recorded songs have two separate copyrights: The sound recording, which is typically owned by the record label, and the musical composition (also known as the "mechanical license"), which is owned by the songwriter and publisher.

Riley/Cale Church of Anthrax is up -- a new arrival I think, since only the title track has a play count.
