DMT 192: Thrilling Rights, Fair Digital Deals Declaration, unRadio, Soundwave, Soundcloud, Pono

271 views 6 days ago
This week on Digital Music Trends it was a real pleasure to welcome Eric MacKay (My Media Insider), Andrew Dubber (Music Tech Fest), Paul Fakler (Arent Fox LLP) and Aidan Sliney (Soundwave).

We start off the show by discussing the latest news around the review of the ASCP and BMI consent decrees by the US Department of Justice. The DOJ is now said to be looking into whether Sony/ATV, UMPG and ASCAP "coordinated" their negotiations with Pandora and Sony/ATV's Chairman threatened to pull out of ASCAP and BMI completely, but is that actually feasible for the publisher?

We also discuss the "Fair Digital Deals Declaration" by the Worldwide Independent Network, Rhapsody's unRadio product, SoundCloud's rumoured equity deal with the majors and PONO gets a new CEO and new back-end service provider.

During the show I also chat with the CTO of Soundwave Aidan Sliney and he demonstrates the brand new version of the app which includes a messaging service.

Finally don't forget to go check out the Music Tech Fest website for news on the event (musictechfest.org) and the My Media Insider website for Eric's latest news (mymediainsider.com).

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