SOUNDEXCHANGE SETTLES CASE WITH SIRIUSXM

 SiriusXM will pay SoundExchange $150 million to settle a lawsuit over outstanding royalties from January 2007 to December 2017. 

Commenting on the settlement, SoundExchange President and CEO Michael Huppe said:

"We are happy to resolve this case with SiriusXM. The settlement allows us to distribute additional royalties to SoundExchange's artists and rights owners while avoiding additional costly litigation."
