(hennemusic) Pandora is disputing claims made this week by Pink Floyd regarding the company's efforts to reduce artist royalties from internet radio.

USA Today published an op-ed piece written by the iconic band that suggested Pandora was trying to convince the US Congress to lower artist royalties by 85% while simultaneously asking artists for their support.

"We have enormous respect for the members of Pink Floyd, and their amazing artistic contributions," began a statement from Pandora published by Business Insider. "We also respect the genuineness of their opinion."

"Unfortunately, they have been given badly misleading information the result of a well-orchestrated campaign by the RIAA and their lobbying arm to mislead and agitate artists.

"A glaring example is the assertion that Pandora supports an '85% artist pay cut.' That is simply not true." more on this story
