Broad. Music, Inc. v. Pandora Media, Inc.
Provided trial testimony on behalf of Pandora in its litigation with Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) regarding the royalty rate for Pandora’s use of music licensed by BMI (Broad. Music, Inc. v. Pandora Media, Inc.). Opined on what range of rates would be reasonable for Pandora’s blanket license to perform works in the BMI repertory; assessed an appropriate advertising sales cost deduction for a Pandora–BMI license; and proposed a method to adjust the royalties that Pandora would pay to BMI when compositions are either directly licensed or withdrawn from BMI.
