There's been a lot going on in Taylor's world over the past week. You may have seen some of the back and forth regarding whether or not Taylor Swift had permission to perform her older stuff live at the upcoming American Music Awards.

The issue is that the master rights to those older songs are owned by Big Machine Label Group, the company owned by Scooter Braun; he bought it from Scott Borchetta. And Taylor brought her struggles with them into the open with this tweet:

Big Machine did not exactly agree with Taylor's characterization of the situation, but it seems that they and the AMAs have now come to an agreement:

“The Big Machine Label Group and Dick Clark Productions announce that they have come to terms on a licensing agreement that approves their artists’ performances to stream post show and for re-broadcast on mutually approved platforms. This includes the upcoming American Music Awards performances. It should be noted that recording artists do not need label approval for live performances on television or any other live media. Record label approval is only needed for contracted artists’ audio and visual recordings and in determining how those works are distributed.” ~Pagesix

Who doesn't love a happy ending?
