Why don’t streaming services know who wrote The Beatles’ songs?
Posted on: 19 mars 2018, by : Stuart Dredge

The latest twist in the controversies around ‘notices of intent’ (NOIs) in the US concerns the most famous band of all-time: The Beatles.
The Music Tech Policy blog notes, with clear scorn, that Google, Amazon and Spotify have all filed NOIs for works by The Beatles, including ‘Love Me Do’, ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’ and ‘Penny Lane’.
For all three of these examples, the NOIs were filed with the songwriters listed as ‘unknown’ by the streaming services (Amazon and Google in those instances) although to Spotify’s credit, at least Lennon, McCartney and George Harrison are listed as the songwriters in its filings.
