Music on Pandora
Most content available on Pandora is provided and licensed to Pandora from third party content providers, but in some cases we play music under the compulsory license for sound recordings (Section 114 of the U.S. Copyright Act), in both cases in combination with blanket, direct, and/or compulsory publishing licenses. Once you have submitted a notification to Pandora regarding your dispute, we will contact the provider of the disputed content regarding your claim. We will generally ask that the provider work with you directly to resolve the issue. In the event your claim is against content that we are providing under the compulsory license for sound recordings, we will assess the validity of our applicable licenses to continue playing that song, and our policy will be to continue to play the music in our discretion so long as we hold a valid license. For all claims of infringement, we will ask that you follow the notification procedure established in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, using the link above.
