Music Publishers Sue Twitter

Twitter's alleged actions are accused of fueling the company's growth illegally.

Music publishers filed a lawsuit against Twitter on allegations that the social media platform allows users to illegally share copyrighted songs.

The lawsuit alleges Twitter of “breeding massive copyright infringement” for years that harms music creators by allowing users to share the songs without a license.

It also claims Twitter’s misconduct has only gotten worse since Elon Musk bought the company last fall.

Twitter’s alleged actions are accused of fueling the company’s growth illegally.

The complaint cites over 1,700 songs whose copyright Twitter allegedly infringed.

The platform is now being sued for over $250 million in damages.
