This week on Digital Music Trends it was a real pleasure to welcome Glenn Peoples (Sr. Editorial Analyst, Billboard), Andy Malt (Editor, CMU) and Mandar Thakur (COO, Times Music India).

We start by talking about Apple’s suit including the difficulties the prosecution is having finding plaintiffs and we cover YouTube’s new rights database that video creators will be able to consult before using a copyrighted track on their video.

Then Mandar Thakur from Times Music joins me to chat about the evolution of the digital music market in India over the past 12 months.

After that interview we chat about Grooveshark’s new radio service, the Pirate Bay raid, SoundCloud reportedly working on another funding round, the vinyl boom and the iPod Classic’s price soaring.


I really hope you enjoy the show.

Have a great week and ’till next time.

An interview with Mandar Thakur from Times Music India – DMT at MIDEM 2014

Digital Music Trends brings you some insights on the Indian music market thanks to this interview with Mandar Thakur, Chief Operating Officer at Times Music India, one of the largest independent music entities in the country. We chat about the structure of the industry, how music promotion works, streaming services, YouTube and lots more!

00:45 Tell us a little about Times Music
01:53 Are the models that are applied in India very similar to the ones applied in the UK or US as far as licensing, royalties, record sales etc?
04:30 Are the majors present in India and what are their market shares?
08:25 As India’s music scene is directly linked to the movie industry, how do you get fans to know about your music?
09:55 What are the largest music streaming services in India?
The biggest challenge for 3rd party streaming services will be to be able to license the catalog that they need to actually become an appealing service to the country. What are your thoughts on this issue?
