WMG pulls music from Last.fm

Apparent dispute over compensation rates the cause

Warner Music Group has pulled its music from Last.fm's free on-demand music streaming service in an apparent dispute over compensation rates.

Last.fm began removing Warner artists from its service last week at the label's request.

Last.fm parent CBS said, "We are currently negotiating a new agreement with Warner Music Group and are working hard to build the most comprehensive music service on the Web."
