Comment from IFPI on UK High Court decision in TuneIn case

1st November 2019

“IFPI welcomes today’s decision by the High Court of England and Wales confirming that TuneIn, the world’s largest online radio aggregator, needs a licence from UK sound recording right holders.

“The decision sends a clear message that services like TuneIn that generate revenues by providing online access to recorded music must negotiate licenses and compensate right holders for the use of their music. We continue to work to ensure that this is the case and that revenue is returned to those that invest in and create music."
