NMPA AND PELOTON SETTLE
2/27/20

The National Music Publishers’ Association (NMPA) and interactive fitness platform Peloton announced on 2/27 that they have settled the litigation brought last year by 14 NMPA members, ending a lawsuit that alleged copyright infringement. In addition, Peloton and the trade association have entered into a joint collaboration agreement, and will work together to further optimize Peloton’s music licensing systems and processes. 

NMPA President & CEO David Israelite said, “We are pleased the music publishers and their songwriter partners in this case have reached a settlement with Peloton that compensates creators properly and sets forth the environment for a positive relationship going forward. Peloton is an innovative company, and we are impressed with the company’s investment in technology and commitment to delivering a powerful, authentic music experience.”  

Peloton’s Head of Music Paul DeGooyer said, “Music is an important part of the Peloton experience, and we are very proud to have pioneered a new revenue stream for recording artists and songwriters. We’re equally proud to partner with David and the NMPA to ensure that songwriters are, and continue to be, fairly compensated. With the NMPA’s input, we are confident our proprietary music system will provide an even more dynamic fitness experience for our millions of members worldwide.”
