Aditi Singh, writing for Bar and Bench:
[…] Spotify had approached Saregama to get a license for streaming the latter company’s musical works on its platform. The negotiation talks between the parties also began and the terms of the license were discussed. Subsequently, on Spotify’s request, Saregama also provided copyright of its work a month prior to the launch of Spotify in India.
The license agreement, however, could not be finalized and Saregama requested Spotify to block all of its work on the app..
Spotify India already doesn’t have any of Warner Music content, and this is only going to make its library less appealing.
