Martin Bandier: 'US streaming rates are unjustifiably below-market'


Sony/ATV boss Martin Bandier has used his artist's success at the Grammy nominations to highlight the "unjustifiably below-market royalty rates" paid by music streaming services in the US.

On the list of Sony/ATV nominees are Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Pharrell Williams, together with a host of songwriters who've contributed to titles up for Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year.

The winners will be announced at the 57th Grammy Awards, taking place in LA on February 8.
