This week on Digital Music Trends I chat with Eamonn FordeLucas Gonze and Adam Webb in a very streaming-oriented show kicking off with the headline story that is the launch of Beats Music in the United States and its potential impact on the streaming market.

DMT 117: The One With MySpace, Redigi, Mega, Sweden, Fandalism, HMV…

This week on Digital Music Trends we cover The Most News Ever. Only kidding, but it’s a hefty number of stories and I couldn’t have done it without the help of Stuart Dredge and Darren Hemmings.

This week we talk about: 
- the public launch of MySpace, Justin Timberlake’s involvement and the Merlin rights issue.
- Redigi’s upcoming European launch, legal implications and potential repercussions on the industry (if anyone can be bothered to use it)
- Kim Dotcom’s launch of Mega amongst much fanfare, but what’s the potential piracy impact?
- digital distribution price wars as Fandalism offers first free and then cheap iTunes, Spotify and Google Play uploads
- the KLF releases slipping through checks and getting released without permission on iTunes and Spotify
- flexibility price of streaming subscriptions as Rhapsody launches a $5 tier tied to the MetroPCS carrier
- the astonishing story of music sales in Sweden where growth is in the double digits, and is anything happening out there applicable in the UK or is it simply a cultural difference
- a quick update on HMV, as the group starts to

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