How Spotify Is Using The New Royalty Law To Hurt Musicians

Spotify has had a longstanding, quiet feud with artists and songwriters.

Lately they’ve been stepping that up:

First, back in February they appealed the Copyright Royalty Board’s ruling which increases royalties for artists and songwriters…

Now, Spotify is using that same law to take money back from artists and writers who earned their money by getting streamed on the world’s most popular streaming platform.

Who does this benefit?

Definitely not the musicians…

Definitely not the listeners…

Just Spotify!

For a little more background, check out two videos I’ve released previously:

I Chose To Pay Apple Music MORE For Music Streaming???
