IFPI said that the decision by the Court of Appeal “confirms that TuneIn can only operate with appropriate licences from right holders and therefore cannot continue to blatantly disregard its obligation to ensure that its service is lawful.

Operating lawfully with an appropriate licence is essential if music creators are to be fairly compensated”. To read IFPI’s statement on its website, click here.
