Some good news for PANDORA, which "can continue playing all songs under its license with BrOADCAST MUSIC INC. as the Internet radio service works out a new deal with the songwriters group, a federal judge said," reports BLOOMBERG.
U.S. District Judge LOUIS L. STANTON clarified an earlier ruling, which indicated PANDORA could lose access to some music on JANUARY 1st (NET NEWS 12/19).
“Nothing in the opinion impairs their validity,” STANTON RULED about pre-existing licenses.
