-- Naxos of America today joined a growing list of music distributors who have pulled their owned content, as well as that of all third party label partners that it distributes digitally, from the digital music streaming service eMusic. Effective immediately, Naxos of America distributed music will no longer be available on eMusic. This action was taken due to eMusic's continued non-payment, as well as non-reporting, for use of Naxos's content.
In announcing this decision, Naxos of America provided the following statement:
"The decision to remove our content from eMusic was not taken lightly; however, fulfillment of payment obligations is a cornerstone of all successful business partnerships. In representing both Naxos and our hundreds of distributed label partners, our only remaining responsible choice is to remove all content from the eMusic service. We continue to work successfully with hundreds of other digital service providers around the world."
