Mark McGrath is ripping Peloton for allegedly stealing music to build its brand … and he says it’s time the company pays songwriters and artists.
We got the Sugar Ray frontman at LAX Wednesday, and our photog asked him about the $150 million lawsuit claiming Peloton is jacking songs for spin classes. Ya gotta see Mark’s reaction … he’s spinning mad about the whole thing, and he ain’t holding back!!!
Mark slams Peloton for allegedly using music it doesn’t have the rights to … and makes an easy-to-understand analogy for those who don’t know how intellectual property works.
Mark, who’s written some hugely successful songs, is understandably upset … but says he’s more concerned about other musicians who can’t afford to have their work stolen.
We also asked Mark what’s the best music to spin to — so long as the rights are locked up. Hint: This band will help you slay your workout.
