Spotify Files To Go Public On New York Stock Exchange As They Get Hit With Potential $1.6 Billion Lawsuit

The new year has come hard and fast for music streaming giant Spotify. The company has been slammed with a potential $1.6 billion lawsuit from Wixen Music Publishing claiming that Spotify has violated Wixen’s copyright on more than 10,000 songs – including tracks from rock legends Tom Petty, Neil Young, and Stevie Nicks.

This lawsuit comes alongside breaking news that the streaming company has secretly filed to finally put Spotify shares on the New York Stock Exchange. As big fans of Spotify’s model placing a high value on music discovery to give new artists a platform to build fans, we’re hoping these claims don’t have an affect on Spotify’s exciting plans to go public. 

Spotify is one of the largest music streaming services worldwide, boasting 60 million paying users and more than 140 million total users. Wixen’s lawsuit argues that Spotify paid the music labels for licensing rights but not the music publishers or songwriters due to “insufficient efforts to collect the required musical composition information.” These claims are alleged at this point, and a court ruling has not been made either way. Spotify has not made comments about the bold accusations. 

A representative from Wixen explained:

“All we’re asking for is for [Spotify] to reasonably compensate our clients by sharing a minuscule amount of the revenue they take in with the creators of the product they sell. Music fans should be able to enjoy Spotify, knowing that their favorite artists are being treated fairly.”

Fortune magazine has pegged Spotify at being worth $16 to $20 billion, which would make it the most valuable standalone music streaming service in the world. It’s unclear how much the lawsuit will actually affect Spotify’s valuation, and until more information is revealed we’re unsure how this will impact the streaming platform.

Monstercat Announces Split Into Two Separate Imprint Labels: Instinct and Uncaged

Independent record label Monstercat, a Canadian imprint that’s helped shape the careers of musicians like Bassnectar, Seven Lions, Marshmello, Kayzo, Robotaki, DROELOE and more, kicked off 2018 with a massive announcement this week. In an unprecedented move that recognizes how diverse electronic music has become in the label’s six years, Monstercat will split into two distinct brands, Monstercat: Instinct and Monstercat: Uncaged, in 2018.

According to Monstercat CEO Mike Darlington, Monstercat: Instinct “represents an important development in the tastes and interests of the Monstercat family… Instinct will develop the unique stories of our artists worldwide.” From the teaser video linked below, it appears that this side of the label will explore the more laidback, melodic subgenres of electronic music. Artists Didrick and Owl City are confirmed for releasing music with Instinct in 2018.

On the other side of the spectrum, Monstercat: Uncaged will continue the vision that Monstercat was created with back in 2011. “The combination of live events, bass music, and gaming laid the groundwork for our deep love of electronic music. Uncaged allows us to heighten the focus on these core elements to create a compelling experience for our community,” Darlington said. The Uncaged teaser video, also linked below, drives that idea home. Artists Gent & Jawns and Darren Styles are confirmed to join Uncaged in 2018.
