Dina LaPolt gives Spotify a roasting over songwriter royalties appeal
Posted on: 5 juin 2019, by : Stuart Dredge

The ears of senior Spotify execs will surely have been burning this afternoon, as veteran lawyer Dina LaPolt took the company to task in her Midem keynote over its appeal against new songwriter royalty rates in the US.
Spotify was not the only streaming service to appeal: Pandora, Amazon and Google are too. But LaPolt, who is president of LaPolt Law, explained why she thinks Spotify is drawing most heat from publishers and songwriters.
“Pandora has very little skin in the game. Their interactive service is shit!” she said. “Apple is amazing, because they accept the appeal and say ‘Yup, songwriters deserve more money’… Amazon are new, and they’re not a big player in the game.”
