TIDAL Responds to Lawsuit Claims

Yesterday news leaked that music streaming service TIDAL had been hit with a $5 million class action lawsuit by a The American Dollar band and Yesh Music, LLC claiming they hadn't been paid royalties [click here if you missed that].

TIDAL releases a statement responding to the claims...

“TIDAL is up to date on all royalties for the rights to the music stated in Yesh Music, LLC and John Emanuele’s claim and they are misinformed as to who, if anyone, owes royalty payments to them.”
"As Yesh Music, LLC admits in their claim, TIDAL has the rights to the Master Recordings through its distributor Tunecore and have paid Tunecore in full for such exploitations. Their dispute appears to be over the mechanical licenses, which we are also up to date on payments via Harry Fox Agency our administrator of mechanical royalties."
"The main compositions in question were release(d) by The American Dollar and their entire catalogue streamed fewer than 13,000 times on TIDAL and its predecessor over the past year. We have now removed all music associated with Yesh Music, LLC and John Emanuele from the service."
"They especially should not be naming S Carter Enterprises, LLC, which has nothing to do with Tidal. This claim serves as nothing other than a perfect example of why America needs Tort reform."

Trump inherited $200M from his father. That's not luck,that's a license to act a fucking fool in which he does.

$5 million is nothing compared to the $150 million lawsuit Spotify was hit with in December and another $200 million lawsuit in January.

Those white muthafuckas at Spotify are more crooked than Jay and Russ put together but of course blacks will continue to sing their praises and support their crooked white asses while clowning niggas who are "accused" of doing the same type of shit!!
