Wixen Music Publishing Files $50M Copyright Infringement Lawsuit Against Triller

Wixen Music Publishing has filed a $50 million copyright infringement lawsuit against short-form video-sharing app – and quick-rising TikTok competitor – Triller.

Wixen Music Publishing, which named Spotify in a $1.6 billion infringement suit just before the deadline outlined in the Music Modernization Act (MMA), recently submitted the Triller complaint to a California federal court. Digital Music News obtained an exclusive copy of the corresponding filing, which calls for Wixen to receive the maximum damages of $150,000 per infringed work – or a minimum of $50.4 million, not including legal fees.

Significantly, Wixen notes towards the beginning of the complaint that it “believes the actual number of infringed” works is “well over one thousand.” The list of allegedly infringed songs – and, in turn, the total damages sought – will be updated moving forward.
