Are Songs on Spotify Protected from Copyright Infringement?

Ownership of the copyright of anything means you can make copies, redistribute, and reproduce that work. This license allows you to earn royalties from the sound or recording anytime someone uses it.

Spotify protects songs and recordings on the platform from copyright infringement.

As a streaming service, it ensures that owners give their consent to all materials on its platform. From their agreement, the company pays royalties to them depending on how often their work gets used.

Until it identifies the person or label that owns a song or recording, the platform sets aside royalties even when the information to confirm the copyright holder of the work is absent.

Spotify accepts that there are instances when materials on the platform may violate copyright law without their knowledge.

The company’s copyright policy requires property owners to alert them if any part of their work is directly available on the streaming service without their permission.

Copyright owners can submit a notice of the infringement to Spotify online or choose to send it to the company’s designated agent at the address below:

Spotify USA Inc.

Attn: Legal Department, Copyright Agent

4 World Trade Center, 150 Greenwich Street, 62nd Floor, New York, NY 10007

[email protected]

The report should contain details that enable Spotify to verify how valid the claim is.

In appropriate circumstances, the company will terminate the accounts of subscribers who keep infringing on its copyright policy.
