DMT 219: Future of Copyright in the US, Grammys, Deezer Elite, Rhapsody, Apple as a label?

Want to be the first to hear when a new show is out? Subscribe to the newsletter on http://www.bit.ly/dmtlist

This week on Digital Music Trends it was a pleasure to welcome Kristelia Garcia (Associate Professor of Law at Colorado Law) and Dan Koplowitz (founder of Friendly Fire Recordings).

We start the show by tackling some of the salient points of the copyright recommendations document released by the US Copyright Office last week. Admittedly, our discussion only covers a tiny portion of what is contained in the 245-page document – any more and the subject would have taken over the show – but hopefully it will serve as a good introduction.

On a related point, we also discuss the Grammy’s newly launched Creators Alliance, which seems to pave the way for a more co-ordinated approach from artists towards getting their voices heard, especially if the recommendations mentioned above were to lead to the drafting of a new bill.

In regards to digital music services, we cover Deezer Elite’s expansion to 150 territories, Rhapsody reaching 2.5 million users and the (denied) rumors of Apple’s Big Machine acquisition, could the Netflix/Amazon model work in the music industry?

Finally, we discuss the Billboard Power List and the issue of diversity in the music industry and Kristelia tells us about a fantastic conference she has been organising entitled “Innovation in the Creation and Distribution of Content” featuring high-profile artists, digital music executives and a fireside chat with the US Register of Copyrights Maria Pallante (more info on http://bit.ly/flatironsip).


I really hope you enjoy the show,

DMT 162: Beyoncé (and more Beyoncé ), the most influential stories of 2013 and music apps innovation

This week on Digital Music Trends I had the pleasure to welcome Glenn Peoples (Billboard), Darren Hemmings (Motive Unknown) and Michael Roffman (Consequence of Sound). We chat about Beyoncé’s surprise album release and its potential impact on the industry, discuss the news stories that influenced 2013 and may also be relevant through 2014 and finally talk about the future of innovation for music apps and services using the iTunes best-of 2013 list as a springboard.

Quite how we managed to stretch these three subjects to well over 1 hour and 10 minutes is beyond me but it was a really fun show – you’ll have to tune in to figure it out!

This is the last “news” show for 2013 but there will be a couple of specials coming in the next two of weeks: an interview with The Echo Nest’s CEO and a “DMT around the world in 2013″ show with snippets of some of the best interviews I recorded this year so look out for them!

Have a fantastic week, happy holidays and ’till next time.
