Pandora Media Sues Ascap Seeking Lower Songwriter Fees

Pandora Media Inc., the biggest Internet radio service, sued the organization representing songwriters and composers to seek lower license fees for playing their songs.

Pandora, which is also lobbying the U.S. Congress for lower royalties on recordings, today asked a federal court in New York to set “reasonable” license fees from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers through 2015.
