Los Angeles singer-songwriter Aimee Mann has settled her lawsuit with a digital music provider, in which she alleged she was not paid for the distribution of her music over the Internet, according to court papers obtained Tuesday by City News Service.
Mann, who earned Academy Award and Grammy Award nominations for her song “Save Me” from the Paul Thomas Anderson film “Magnolia,” alleged in her 2013 suit that MediaNet Digital was making 120 of her songs available but was not paying her royalties.
A single-page notice of settlement was filed in Los Angeles federal court on Monday.
A message left with a MediaNet representative was not immediately answered, and Mann’s attorney declined comment.
Frank Johnson, MediaNet’s CEO, said previously that the company had a license for Mann’s music and was paying regular royalties to her representatives.
New York-based MediaNet provides about 20 million songs to music streaming services, including Yahoo Music, Playlist.com and various online radio services.
MediaNet also allows its website visitors to buy digital copies of songs for 99 cents to $1.29 each.
Mann sought as much $18 million in statutory damages, and an injunction barring MediaNet from distributing her songs.
