Spotify drops major Indian label
This came after the record labels failed to agree on licensing terms
According to a court document, Saregama India Ltd filed a petition with the Delhi High Court seeking an injunction against the music streaming service to stop it from using its songs.
According to the court document dated April 23, Spotify’s senior counsel said the streaming service would remove all Saregama songs from its app within 10 days.
Spotify said last month it had more than 1 million unique users in India across its free and premium categories within a week of its launch. The company offers a free version supported by ads and a premium ad-free variant that charges users 119 rupees ($1.68) per month.
Spotify has not made any comment concerning the court case.
