Rap music made what worse - the music industry? How so?

Interesting reading.

I think a lot of big labels got very bloated with non-creative middlemen types who mainly liked to pretend they were creative geniuses somehow... and sometimes they let the actual promo and salesmen who did real work interfacing with the world down. Sadly they started eating each other and with the lesser variety the creative part stagnated into copying proven things. There have been some great successes among small labels and reissue labels that were lean and less extravagant (into the hype and 'lifestyle'). At least the ones that didn't exist or want to succeed mainly just to be good enough to get bought up by the giants.

I think the new reality is going to be downloads (or varying quality) mainly with hard copies in CD or vinyl being the upscale boutique option.

Spotify Faces Stepped-Up Legal Pressure from Stevie Nicks, Neil Young, Steve Perry, The Doors, Stevie Ray Vaughan…
Spotify is now facing legal pressure from some of the biggest musicians and songwriters in the world.

Earlier this week, Spotify was served with multiple lawsuits demanding hundreds of millions in unpaid royalties. But the list of prominent musicians and songwriters is far deeper than we imagined.

According to filings shared with Digital Music News, Spotify is now facing demands from high-profile stars like Stevie Nicks, Neil Young, Donald Fagen (of Steely Dan), Michael McDonald, and even members of Journey. All of those artists are part of a collective pushback by Wixen Music Publishing, and listed in a 1,400 page ‘Exhibit A’ reviewed by Digital Music News this morning.

Others in the Exhibit include members of the Eagles, Cheap Trick, Jimmie Vaughan, and the estate of Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Even the Doors were listed in the Exhibit, specifically through the ‘Doors Music Company LLC’.

Dig a little deeper, and none other than Bruce Willis was also on the list. And he’s not the only actor: Anthony Hopkins has also been sidelining as a classical songwriter, apparently.

Earlier, we reported participation from Tom Petty, Rage Against the Machine, The Black Keys, Kenny Rogers, and the heirs of Sonny Bono. Well, those names are in this Exhibit too. But guess we were just scratching the surface in our first article.

Wixen, a publishing giant, has recently moved to reject a proposed $43 million settlement agreement with Spotify.

That settlement would absolve Spotify for failing to pay for ‘mechanical’ reproductive licenses, though it now appears unlikely to stand.

Separately, Spotify’s legal tussle with 9 different publishers also continued this week.

As part of its mounting mess surrounding the mechanical, Spotify’s counter-offensive is growing ugly. Just last month, the company’s lawyers engineered a complete reversal on the matter by arguing that the license did not apply to streaming services. That could stand in court, though it runs completely contrary to earlier declarations by the company.

We’ll have the complete Exhibit A, complete with 500+ names, ahead.

Spotify slapped with $1.6 billion copyright lawsuit over Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks songs

Spotify has been hit with a massive copyright infringement lawsuit from Wixen Music Publishing, which represents songwriters such as Neil Young, Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty, Zach De La Rocha, and Rivers Cuomo and alleges that the streaming service is using tens of thousands of Wixen’s artists’ songs without proper license and compensation.

As first reported by the Hollywood Reporter, Wixen is seeking at least $1.6 billion in damages.

Wixen’s complaint, filed Dec. 29 in California federal court, contends, “Prior to launch, Spotify struck deals with major record labels to obtain the necessary rights to the sound recording copyrights in the songs by offering the major labels, in many cases, equity stakes in Spotify: But Spotify failed to properly obtain the equivalent rights for the compositions. As a result, Spotify has built a billion dollar business on the backs of songwriters and publishers whose music Spotify is using, in many cases without obtaining and paying for the necessary licenses.”

A Spotify spokesperson declined to comment on the lawsuit.

Wixen’s lawsuit comes six months after Spotify reached a proposed $43.4 million settlement to resolve a class-action lawsuit with songwriters and publishers led by David Lowery and Melissa Ferrick. The Swedish-based streaming service was also hit with two more copyright lawsuits in July.

In a statement Tuesday, Wixen said the company and its clients decided not to participate in the Ferrick v. Spotify lawsuit “in part because of their belief that the proposed settlement is inadequate, because too much of the settlement is going to legal fees, and because the terms of the go-forward license in the settlement are not in their long-term best interests.”

Randall Wixen, the company’s president, added, “We’re just asking to be treated fairly. We are not looking for a ridiculous punitive payment. … All we’re asking for is for them to reasonably compensate our clients by sharing a miniscule amount of the revenue they take in with the creators of the product they sell.”

In the good old days they'd get platinum awards for whatever was shipped to the record stored, regardless if the records sat in a box or not.
