The two countries are considering whether to strike out entirely on digital platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.
Both sides, however, are wary of potentially destabilizing the global music industry and their respective industries.
The companies that make and distribute music have already struggled with piracy and declining subscription rates.
Spotify has been accused of promoting “toxic” content by promoting rap music without being a member of a rap group.
In an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek said his company was “taking this seriously,” and he said the company was taking a “very strong position” against the proposed legislation.
“We think that we’re in a position to provide an alternative to what some people might call a music subscription service,” Ek said.
Spotify, like the other streaming services, is trying to diversify its music offering.
Ek said that its streaming service would be available through Spotify, Amazon Prime Music, Spotify Play, Spotify and other platforms.
Ek added that Spotify is also working on an app that would allow users to pay for content through their phones and laptops.
“At the end of the day, we’re looking to make sure that we provide a great experience for our customers, and we’re very excited about that,” Ek told the AP.
In Finland, which has long been one of the most popular streaming services in the world, Spotify is in talks with major Finnish radio stations to try to sell music through its service.
The music streaming service said in a statement that it would seek an agreement from major Finnish broadcasters and that it has “not yet finalized an agreement” with any Finnish radio station.
Ek is in the United States on a business trip.
He is expected to meet with the CEOs of Apple and Spotify at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California, on Tuesday.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has said that Apple is “deeply concerned” about digital piracy and has been working with Swedish authorities on ways to tackle it.
The legislation in Finland comes as Europe has seen record-breaking sales of music streaming services like Spotify, which have attracted thousands of users from around the world.
It also comes after Sweden banned the sale of music to minors, a move that sparked criticism from the U.S. government and raised questions about the legality of such sales.
