ASCAP to Pandora: Not so fast
According to a representative from ASCAP Radio Ink spoke to last night, the Pandora purchase of a radio station may have been a waste of $600,000. ASCAP EVP of Licensing Vincent Candilora says, "The RMLC license was designed for terrestrial radio stations and groups which earned the overwhelming share of their revenues from traditional radio, not an online streaming service that buys a radio station that ranks only 255th in the U.S. market as a ploy to undercut songwriters."

The battle between Pandora and music publishers such as ASCAP and BMI just got a little more interesting and, for sure, will be heading to court. BMI has ended negotiations with Pandora and filed a lawsuit against the online music service. [Radio Ink]
