Jay Z’s Tidal faces Lawsuit Over Royalties

Entertainment March 2, 2016

I take it Tidal has been doing very for the past Months. It had one of the biggest and exclusive releases from the likes of Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Kanye West. Shawn Corey Carter, well known as his stage name Jay Z is indirectly facing a lawsuit of unpaid royalties that’s allegedly worth $5m (R77.9M)

TIDAL sent and responded to the lawsuit in a statement to Fader:

“TIDAL is up to date on all royalties for the rights to the music stated in Yesh Music, LLC and John Emanuele’s claim and they are misinformed as to who, if anyone, owes royalty payments to them. As Yesh Music, LLC admits in their claim, TIDAL has the rights to the Master Recordings through its distributor Tunecore and have paid Tunecore in full for such exploitations. Their dispute appears to be over the mechanical licenses, which we are also up to date on payments via Harry Fox Agency our administrator of mechanical royalties.

The main compositions in question were release by The American Dollar and their entire catalogue streamed fewer than 13,000 times on TIDAL and its predecessor over the past year. We have now removed all music associated with Yesh Music, LLC and John Emanuele from the service. This is the first we have heard of this dispute and Yesh Music, LLC should be engaging Harry Fox Agency if they believe they are owed the royalties claimed. They especially should not be naming S Carter Enterprises, LLC, which has nothing to do with Tidal. This claim serves as nothing other than a perfect example of why America needs Tort reform.”
