Bloomberg Technology published a profile about David Lowery, a musician and lecturer for the Terry College of Business, and his efforts to promote musicians’ rights in the streaming music world.
Lowery, who teaches in the Music Business Certificate Program, has filed a copyright infringement suit against the music streaming service Spotify.
In the Bloomberg profile, “One Cranky Rocker Takes on the Entire Streaming Music Business,” Lowery said he does not oppose the streaming music service and the role technological innovation plays in the industry.
“I’m not looking backwards to some perceived golden age of the music business,” Lowery said. “There wasn’t a golden age of the music business.”
What Lowery believes, he told Bloomberg, is that streaming music services must be fair for artists and songwriters.
