DMT 186: Apple buys Beats, WIN vs YouTube Pt.2, Amazon’s music, Megaupload’s cash, Consent Decree

This week on Digital Music Trends it was a real pleasure to welcome Ben Sisario (New York Times) and Eriq Gardner (The Hollywood Reporter) to the show as we discuss – at long last – Apple’s official announcement of the Beats Acquisition, WWDC, independent label associations coming down hard on YouTube and preparing to file a complaint with the European Union, Amazon’s possible entry in the on-demand streaming space, the Department of Justice reviewing ASCAP and BMI’s consent decree, MPAA and RIAA working to make sure Megaupload’s assets stay frozen, Ticketmaster’s tentative settlement and Stubhub launching a music app.

I really hope you enjoy the show, have a great week and ’till next time.

DMT 185: Indies vs YouTube, Apple & Beats, LyricFind, Next Big Book, Audiam, Twitter Charts

Subscribe to DMT’s newsletter on http://www.bit.ly/dmtlist

This week on Digital Music Trends I chat with Vickie Nauman – former President of 7Digital in North America and now at CrossBorderWorks consulting – about her experience at Music Matters in Singapore, the independent music organisations lashing out against YouTube, the so-almost-closed deal between Apple and Beats (which closed a few hours after our recording), the launch of Next Big Book, Audiam moving beyond YouTube, the new real-time Billboard charts powered by Twitter.

In the show I also interview the CEO of LyricFind Darryl Ballantyne on the company’s recent deal with UMPG and its partnership with BandPage.

Finally we also mention the new app Tunepics and the release of Dejay 2 for iPad and iOS with Spotify integration.


I really hope you enjoy the show, have a fantastic week and ’till next time!
