Sony/ATV gets 25% rate increase out of Pandora

BOXED IN: In the midst of Pandora’s battle for a lower royalty rate, Marty Bandier’s Sony/ATV has squeezed a 25% bump out of the service. “At the end of the day, we got a terrific deal for our songwriters,” Bandier told the N.Y. Post’s Claire Atkinson. “Our thinking has been vindicated.
