Universal accuses TikTok of being a “bully” in negotiations, leading to the decision not to renew the expiring contract. TikTok responds, accusing Universal of prioritizing greed over artists’ interests.

The disagreement revolves around compensation, AI impact, and online safety. Universal claims TikTok proposed a significantly lower rate for artists, while TikTok emphasizes its role as a promotional platform with over a billion users. All Universal-licensed music will be removed from TikTok soon.
