You and Spotify agree that any disputes, complaints or controversies that arise between you and Spotify in connection with these agreements or their relationship with Spotify as a user of the service (whether based on a contract, wrongful act, law, misrepresentation or other legal theory and that claims occur during or after the termination of contracts) are determined by a mandatory (unclassified) individual arbitration procedure. You and Spotify also agree that the arbitrator has the exclusive power to rule on its own jurisdiction, including any objections to the existence, scope or validity of the arbitration agreement or the ability to arbitrate a claim or counterclaim. Arbitration is more informal than legal action. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND THE COURT REVIEWING AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. There may be a more limited discovery than in court. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and may award the same damages and facilities as a court (including legal fees), except that the arbitrator cannot grant any ease, including declaratory relief or relief that benefits everyone except the parties to the arbitration. This arbitration provision will last for the termination of the agreements. Sir Lucian Grainge, President and CEO of Universal Music Group, said: „With this agreement, UMG and Spotify are more committed than ever to ensuring that the entire music ecosystem thrives and reaches new audiences around the world. Given our commitment to innovation and the early introduction of music technologies and Spotify`s leadership in developing tools of the future, our new partnership will provide our artists with new and powerful opportunities to connect with fans on Spotify`s growing platform.
In collaboration, our teams will expand and accelerate our collaboration to provide artistic initiatives, strategic marketing campaigns and new offerings to offer fans exciting new experiences around the world. On Wednesday, New York federal Judge Ronnie Abrams made a new statement in a major complaint. It believes that many of Sony Music`s licensing agreements with streamings such as Spotify, Rhapsody and Last.FM are ambiguous about how they describe streaming music. The result is that the case continues – perhaps finally in court – and, so far, the confidential contracts have been dissected in detail. However, please note that some aspects of your use of the Spotify service may be settled by additional agreements. This could include, for example, access to the Spotify service as a result of a gift card, free or discounted trial versions, or with other services. If an offer is submitted to you for such aspects of your use, you will receive an additional agreement and you will have the option to accept additional conditions. Some of these additional terms are listed on Spotify`s website. To the extent that there is an irreconcilable contradiction between the additional conditions and these conditions, priority is given to the additional conditions.
