Lowery's suit argues Spotify knew about and willingly reproduced and distributed copyrighted compositions without obtaining mechanical licenses — fancy talk for basically arguing that Spotify played and promoted music without providing legal remuneration to the artists.

What's it all mean?

Well, this class-action suit comes in the middle of a tough time for Spotify, as the company is also in the middle of a settlement

12 Days Of Perezmas: 1 Major Comeback For Adele!

Filed under: Music MinuteAdeleHolidaze

no title

On the 1st day of Perezmas, pop culture gave to us… one major comeback from Adele!

As 2015 began to wind down, we started wondering who we were going to select as our most influential celebrity of the year.

Caitlyn Jenner came out as trans, Taylor Swift's posse took control of the A-List, and Kim Kardashian West and Kylie Jenner ruled social media… but nothing could really compare to the power of 25.

Adele returned to music after a three and a half year hiatus, and the world was forever changed.

So how did the comeback to end all comebacks really go down??

Taylor Swift fans know better than to expect the singer's songs to be streaming on Spotify!

But this weekend, one of Tay's hits managed to sneak back onto the streaming service — under a weird alias!

As of Monday morning, the songstress' 2012 hit I Knew You Were Trouble had been live on Spotify for three days — with almost 40 million plays (most of which came from when the original song was legitimately released by Swift)!

But it wasn't under the artist name Taylor Swift but rather the copyright was attributed to former rock star and convicted sex offender Ian Watkins and his band Lostprophets!

The streaming service quickly took down the track Monday when it realized the mistake, saying the situation was "very weird."

The streaming service released its end of the year chart-toppers on Tuesday, and the BBHMM singer was joined by The Weeknd and Major Lazer who had the most played album and song thanks to Beauty Behind the Madness and Lean On, respectively.
