On this full show we cover the BBC launching the Playlister as a digital hub of all its music programming, HMV’s 5 point plan, Muve Music reaching 2 million subscribers in the US (but do they all care about music?), Spotify integrating Songkick data deeper into the Artist pages, New Zealand simple OneMusic license, NARM and Digitalmusic.org becoming The Music Business Association, new startup Splice, the much-debated LSE Copyright and Creation paper, iTunes Radio rumored to come to the UK in early 2014 and much more.
