I’m David Lowery’s Attorney. And This Is What I Really Told Spotify…PDF
Mona Hanna was quoted in “I’m David Lowery’s Attorney. And This Is What I Really Told Spotify…,” published in Digital Music News on February 23, 2016. In the article, Ms. Hanna responds to a previously published piece that had erroneously suggested that Spotify’s takedown of client David Lowery’s entire music catalog came at the specific request of Mr. Lowery’s counsel. Ms. Hanna clarifies that she did not demand the wholesale takedown of plaintiff’s catalog, but rather only those songs for which Spotify had failed to secure the required mechanical licenses. She further suggests that by misrepresenting the demand, Spotify seems either to be admitting that none of plaintiff’s material was properly licensed or is simply being retaliatory.
