Music publisher Wixen says Pandora is "willful and deliberate" in using unlicensed song lyrics on the platform.

Pandora displays lyrics for popular songs on mobile and desktop -- but does it have the rights to?

At least for its repertoire, music publishing company Wixen thinks not. The publisher is suing Pandora for copyright infringement, arguing that the radio giant knowingly displayed lyrics from Wixen artists including Tom Petty, Rage Against the Machine and Weezer "without any valid license or authorization."

"Plaintiff brings this action against Pandora to obtain redress for the massive and continuing unauthorized commercial exploitation by Pandora of the lyrics to the musical compositions listed," reads the lawsuit filed Monday. "Plaintiff fully expects that there are numerous additional musical compositions whose lyrics are being or have been exploited by Pandora without authorization from Plaintiff."
