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 real pleasure to welcome Jay Frank (Digsin) and Ben Sisario (New York Times) to the show.

The first part of the show is devoted to a discussion around Zoe Keating’s blog from last week, which highlighted some important issues on the terms imposed by YouTube on independent artists if they want to continue to monetise their content on the platform.

We also talk about Spotify’s coup in securing a partnership with Sony PlayStation that will see the company scrap its Music Unlimited Service (that never really took off…), the positive and negative aspects of the new Touch Preview feature on iOS, the decline of the Australian music market which registered another 10% drop in 2014, iHeartRadio’s latest numbers and Pandora’s next move, Sly Stone’s royalties lawsuit, transparency in the music industry and much more.


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