This week, Apple paid $100 million to settle allegations of copyright infringement over a song by the hip-hop duo Migos.
In return, the tech giant said it would pay $50 million to the song’s creators and the songwriters for their work.
Apple also promised to pay for the weddings of three of its big fans.
The company’s deal with Migos is unusual because it involves paying royalties for the music’s copyright.
The $100-million payout to the artists represents the first royalty payment of its kind, and the biggest one in the history of a copyright case.
Apple said the settlement would not affect its ability to make future payments.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the settlement.
The settlement is the latest move by Apple to address copyright infringement allegations.
Apple sued music publishers and producers in 2013 for $3.4 billion, but the cases were dismissed.
The case was thrown out in 2015, after the Supreme Court rejected a claim that Apple’s $3 billion in revenue should be exempt from income taxes under the Internal Revenue Code.
Apple has been fighting for years to settle similar cases and to get the Internal Tax Court to rule that Apple was responsible for the infringement.
The U.S. government has asked the court to consider the case again, arguing that Apple has a statutory duty to pay.
A court in California last year rejected the government’s request.
Apple had previously paid $4.9 million to songwriters who had sued in the past for copyright infringement.
It settled the same cases in 2014 and 2015, and paid another $5 million to two songwriters last year.
The companies’ deals with the songwriting groups also included promises to pay royalties to the music.
“Migos’ music is one of the most beloved and beloved artists of our generation,” Apple said in a statement on Wednesday.
“We’re pleased to be able to help them make the most of this opportunity and give them the freedom to create their music as they see fit.”
