Pandora sues ASCAP over songwriter fees, asks court to establish ‘reasonable’ licensing – The Verge

Pandora today filed a lawsuit against the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) in a bid to lower the licensing fees it pays out to songwriters, composers, and publishers to stream their music. First reported by Bloomberg, the suit follows more than a year of failed discussions between the two sides to reach a new rate, with Pandora now asking a US District Court in New York to implement a blanket licensing fee that would cover all work under ASCAP's representation. The organization's membership currently stands at over 435,000.
