Over 1 Lakh Saregama songs to be removed by Spotify

Over 1 Lakh Saregama songs to be removed by Spotify

Spotify, one of the popular music streaming platform, plans to remove at least one lakh songs owned by theIndian music label, Saregama, Economic Times reported. The action is expected to be completed in the next ten days.

In relation to a case filed by Saregama against Spotify, the lawyers representing Spotify has already informed the lawyers about delisting almost 3000 Saregama songs from its platform and will remove the entire list of tracks within the next ten days.

According to court orders, Spotify must complete the process within the stipulated time, a person familiar with the matter said; the court ruling follows the failure of the two companies to settle the deal on papers. None of the companies responded to comment on the matter.

In the catalog of Saregama, there are some of the Bollywood’s older hits which date back to the early years of the Indian film industry.

The court statement suggests that Saregama had given its bank of more than 1 lakh songs to the Swedish music platform a month earlier, so that these can be uploaded before an official rollout in India on February 28 this year. Both the companies were dealing with the matter. But later on the talks didn’t continue and Saregama requested Spotify to remove or block the songs from its platform.

Spotify is looking to grab a spot in the Indian music streaming market by acquiring shares in other platforms such as Wynk, Gaana, JioSaavn, and Youtube music.
