Spotify to show whether investors believe in music's resurgence

The lawsuit said that Spotify initially tried to work with record labels but'in a race to be first to market made insufficient efforts to collect the required musical composition information

Earphones are seen on a tablet screen with a Spotify logo on it, in Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina, February 20, 2014. This means that unlike most other IPOs, there will be no set price for Spotify shares at the time the IPO goes live. First, it is next to impossible to track and file litigation against all the individuals who are illegally downloading and redistributing music content, but it is definitely possible to identify these major companies that are making it possible.

Spotify will become a publicly traded company via an unusual direct listing rather than a cash-generating initial public offering, the hope seemingly being that the former approach will come with less risk.

Last year, the executive helped Spotify secure critical licenses with the big music labels that paved the way for the company's IPO. Reports now suggest that, following a filing with the US Securities And Exchange Commission over the Christmas break, Spotify could arrive on the New York Stock Exchange in the first quarter of this year.

"Spotify has built a billion-dollar business on the backs of songwriters and publishers whose music Spotify is using, in many cases without obtaining and paying for the necessary licenses", the lawsuit says. It is seeking damages worth at least $1.6 billion and injunctive relief.
