CLE 4: Unhappy Together - The Turtles with Sirius XM

In late 2014, federal courts in California and New York ruled against Sirius XM for refusing to pay royalties on their broadcasts of sound recordings made prior to 1972. These so-called “Flo & Eddie Cases” (because they were brought by the founding members of the rock group “The Turtles”) could result in a huge financial windfall for many heritage artists and their record companies. They also touch the third rail issue of performance royalties for sound recordings and how they are currently paid differently for interactive media (Spotify) versus non-interactive media (Pandora) versus terrestrial media (where they are not paid at all). The panel will look at these cases and their implications.
