DMT’s SXSW Music Law Special ft. Lita Rosario, Ken Abdo, Paul M. Fakler and Greg Barnes

Digital Music Trends’ coverage of SXSW included a few interviews addressing some of the most pressing legal and legislative issues in the US around music and copyright, so I decided to bundle them together in a special show. This episode features Lita Rosario (President, WYZ Entertainment), Ken Abdo (Vice-President, Lommen Abdo), Paul M. Fakler (Partner, Arent Fox LLP) and Greg Barnes (General Counser, DiMA).

We cover termination rights, the review of the Copyright Act, digital royalties, interactive music applications, rate courts and the Pandora debate, pre-1972 sound recordings, the DMCA and compulsory mechanical licenses.


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

Ep.9: Oleg Fomenko, CEO at Bloom.fm (DMT 1-2-1)

This week on DMT 1-2-1 an interview with Oleg Fomenko, CEO of Bloom.fm, recorded at Liverpool Sound City.

Bloom.fm is a music streaming service launched in January in the UK as an iOS app. The service introduces the idea of tiered, flexible pricing when it comes to consuming streaming music on a mobile device. So far consumers that wanted to access on-demand streaming via their smartphone had to pay the usual £10 per month for unlimited access, Bloom.fm lowers that barrier introducing £1 and £5 subscriptions which give users access to – respectively – 20 or 200 tracks that can be stored on the device and swapped at any time.  In the interview we chat about how Bloom got started, the challenges on the design and licensing front, the issue of discovery, the importance of a flexible pricing model to bring streaming to mainstream audiences.
