We chat about SESAC’s latest announcements and the acquisition of Rumblefish, the NAB’s opposition to a review of the consent decrees, Merlin’s deal with Pandora, Smule’s new artist program and the potential adoption of a global street date for music releases.

We also discuss the latest developments in music distribution services for independent artists and the evolution of crowdfunding services.
