#cancelspotify A growing group of songwriters are taking to social media to urge users to #cancelspotify in protest of the streamer’s decision to challenge a US Copyright Royalty Board decision to raise streaming payments to songwriters 44% over the next 5 years.
Yesterday dozens of top songwriters called out Spotify in an an open letter that urged the streamer to reverse course: “Now, we can see the real reason for your songwriter outreach. You have used us and tried to divide us but we stand together.”
While #cancelspotify is far from trending on Twitter, the campaign does appear to be gathering some momentum.
