A lot of artists, bands, indie labels and publishers have a problem with the payout from Spotify, but most feel that at least they’re being paid something. What could be worse is if your songs are being played by the service and you’re receiving no royalty at all.
That’s the basis for a $150 million class action lawsuit brought against Spotify by Camper Van Beethoven/Cracker leader David Lowery.
Lowery claims that Spotify has failed to get the proper licenses to distribute certain copyrighted songs, and then failed to pay the copyright holders and publishers the proper royalties.
