    From the article:

    Dan Chalmers, director of Youtube Music for Europe, Middle East and Africa, said that Koda was “asking for significantly more than what we pay our partners around the world”.

    Koda maintained that Google wanted to slash payments for Danish artists by 70 percent. Its media director Kaare Struve said that this was a “reduction Koda will not accept”.

    In the event that the two parties do not agree, Chalmers said that Youtube would have no choice but to remove Danish music from the platform.

    The agreement between Google and Koda expired in April. It was temporarily extended as the parties tried to broker a new one.
