Victory Records has published a release about the disappearance of their catalogue from Spotify. Victory argues that Spotify is not properly paying publishing revenues due to Victory Recordsâ€™ artists. The label adds:
We asked that our catalog not be pulled, that we would amicably work with Spotify, and they haphazardly removed our content regardless. 53,000,000 streams, as per Spotifyâ€™s statements, were identified with no publishing royalties being paid by Spotify. . The issue of nonpayment for songwriters and composers is a widespread problem and not exclusive to Victory Recordsâ€™ artists.
