Victory catalog pulled from Spotify due to royalty dispute
by Victory

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 Records’ 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 Spotify’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 Records’ artists.
