Spotify made its long awaited debut in India earlier this year, with monthly plans starting at just € 119 ($ 1.70). The launch went through despite Warner Music's trials, which prevented Spotify from streaming on the label's large catalog of songs in the country.
In what feels like déjà vu for the streaming service, there is now another injunction, this time from India's oldest record label. Based on the trial, Spotify entered into a negotiation with Saregama to license the 120,000 song label catalog before launching the streaming service in India. It appears that a preliminary agreement was agreed, for Saregama gave the copyright to Spotify one month before the debut.
However, both parties could not complete the license agreement, and Saregama has requested to remove its directory from platform. Spotify has agreed to take down the Saregama Library within ten days and the next hearing is scheduled for May 5.
