"I think the risks are pretty low from this suit," Wedbush SecuritiesSecurities analyst Michael Pachter said in an email. "They may have to pay something, but I can't believe it is a huge percentage of their song play." Pachter has an "outperform" rating with a 12-month price target of $35. The stock is trading at about $28 today
According to the suit, "Pandora's refusal to pay Plaintiffs for its use of [Pre-72] recordings is fundamentally unfair. Pandora's conduct also is unfair to the recording artists and musicians whose performances are embodied in Pre-72 Recordings, but who do not get paid for Pandora's exploitation of Pre-72 Recordings. It is also unfair to other businesses that compete with Pandora but obtain licenses and pay for the right to stream Plaintiffs Pre-72 Recordings to the public, while Pandora does not. As a result, Pandora deprives Plaintiffs and their artists of compensation, while profiting enormously from and gaining an unfair advantage over others who do pay to copy and publicly perform Plaintiffs Pre-72 Recordings."
Digital music companies like Pandora and SiriusXM know people love the music from the '50s, '60s and early "70s with entire channels devoted to songs from this era, including my husband's “Words of Love” (1957) and “Everyday” (1958). So how can it be that they don't pay the artists who created these popular hits? Do Buddy's fans that pay for these digital music services realize that not a penny will go to the artists or their families? Just because Buddy and the other 50s musicians recorded songs before 1972 doesn't mean their songs have no value. These companies" failure to pay the Rock and Roll pioneers is an injustice and it needs to change
"This case presents a classic attempt by Pandora to reap where it has not sown," the labels say in the suit. "Pandora appropriates plaintiffs' valuable and unique property, violates New York law and engages in commoncommon law copyright infringement and misappropriation and unfair competition."
