Bundle Up: The Nashville-based Mechanical Licensing Collective (The MLC) has filed a lawsuit against Spotify seeking recovery of royalties it claims are due under the compulsory mechanical blanket license obtained by Spotify to reproduce and distribute musical works in the U.S. The move stems from Spotify's March move to bundle its streaming plans with audiobooks, which The MLC says has resulted in underpayment of royalties. Details here. Spotify says, "The lawsuit concerns terms that publishers and streaming services agreed to and celebrated years ago." The action follows complaints by NMPA (CAT 5/16) and NSAI (CAT 5/13).
