Spotify acquired Loudr in order to streghnten its policy of dentifying, tracking and paying royalties to music publishers and songwriters.

Spotify explained in a statement:

Loudr will continue to provide select services to its publishing and aggregator partners, while contributing to Spotify’s continued efforts towards a more transparent and efficient music publishing industry for songwriters and rights holders.
