The Copyright Royalty Board ruled that songwriters will be getting a raise in revenue streaming shares. The current amount songwriters get from streaming services is 10.5 percent. The Board's ruling will raise that amount to 15.1 percent share over the next five years. According to a statement from the National Music Publisher's Association, the 4.6 percent raise in revenue is the largest rate increase in CRB history. Since the rise of streaming services like Spotify and YouTube, songwriters have been fighting for higher compensation. The decision, made after a trial where music publishers and songwriters sued Alphabet, Inc., which owns YouTube and Google, Inc., Apple Inc., Spotify Technology, and Pandora Media Inc. was viewed as a victory despite the songwriters pushing to get paid every time a song is streamed.
