Universal, Sony and Warner license new streaming platform CÜR Music

Universal, Sony and Warner license new streaming platform CÜR Music | Infos sur le milieu musical international | Scoop.it
Spotify and Apple Music rival CÜR Music quietly launched in the US this week with 10m licensed tracks – but there could be more on the way.

MBW has discovered that the three biggest recorded music companies in the world, Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment and Warner Music Group have all licensed the platform in the past fortnight.

And it will be no surprise to hear that all three appear to have taken a chunk of equity for their trouble.

On January 12, 2016, CÜR Media Inc issued UMG, SME and Warner warrants to purchase an aggregate (total) of 2,798,613 shares, at a weighted average price of $0.49 per share.

How Artists Make More Money – A Cautionary Tale by Jon Webster ‹ The MMF | Infos sur le milieu musical international | Scoop.it
Then last week two senior industry figures on separate days stated that “artists are making more money from streaming than they did from CDs”. Are you sure? It’s not what our members generally report. Where did that information come from? Ah! Yes. Last years IFPI Digital Report. I remember flicking through the contents page when it was published in April 2015 (ifpi.org/downloads/Digital-Music-Report-2015.pdf) and being bemused by p.20 –

What sport can learn from classical music | Infos sur le milieu musical international | Scoop.it
WHY DO VIOLINISTS have mentors, sportsmen have coaches and doctors (usually) have neither? That was the starting point for Atul Gawande’s examination of his career as an elite surgeon. A similar question inspired a series I made for BBC Radio 3 when I was a professional cricketer. It explored the parallels between athletes and classical musicians.

The Berlin-based company’s annual accounts must be filed with the UK’s regally-appointed Companies House each year, according to British law.

Perhaps there’s something in there he doesn’t want us to read.

Why entrepreneurs should embrace failure in 2016 - Virgin.com

Why entrepreneurs should embrace failure in 2016 - Virgin.com | Infos sur le milieu musical international | Scoop.it
"We've never been 100 per cent sure that any of the businesses we’ve started at Virgin were going to be successful," says Richard Branson. "But over 45 years, we’ve always stood by our motto: 'Screw it, let’s do it'. While this attitude has helped us build hundreds of companies, it hasn’t always resulted in success."
The Virgin businesses that failed did so for different reasons, but once these were identified they became powerful learning experiences. And as other entrepreneurs have discovered, the mistakes that lead to failure can be the making of a successful business next time around.

Spotify hit with second US songwriter lawsuit - this time for $200m

Spotify hit with second US songwriter lawsuit - this time for $200m | Infos sur le milieu musical international | Scoop.it
It’s been a challenging start to 2016 for Spotify’s business affairs team.

First, right at the end of last year, the streaming company was served a $150m class action lawsuit from songwriter and artist David Lowery.

It claimed that Spotify “unlawfully reproduces and/or distributes copyrighted musical compositions” in the US market and “profit[s] off its own unlawful conduct”.

In short, Lowery argues that Spotify has publicly acknowledged that it has not correctly paid US mechanical rights owners the money they are due – and that the company is subsequently making interest by keeping hold of this sum.

Now Spotify has been hit by a second lawsuit, this time arguing that songwriters should get more than $200m from Daniel Ek’s company.

US songwriter and publishing company owner Melissa Ferrick filed her class action complaint in the US District Court in Los Angeles on Friday (January 8).

Like Lowery, Ferrick is claiming damages for Spotify’s alleged “wholesale copyright infringement” on behalf of all songwriters whose musical compositions were “reproduced and distributed without a license during the last three years”.

The Three Things You Need To Know About The UK Music Sales Figures | Infos sur le milieu musical international | Scoop.it
As most people expected, the UK recorded music industry returned to growth in 2015. The UK now follows an increasingly familiar European narrative of strong streaming growth helping bring total markets back to growth. Sales revenue increased 3.5% to reach £1.1 billion while total streams increased by 85% to reach 53.7 billion, with audio stream representing 49.9% of that total. There is no doubt that these are welcome figures for the UK music industry but as is always the case, a little digging beneath the surface of the numbers reveals a more complex and nuanced story. Here are the three things you need to know about UK music sales in 2015.

Full Stack Or Media-Tech Conglomerate? Just What Kind Of Empire Is Access Industries Building? | Infos sur le milieu musical international | Scoop.it
Led by Ukrainian-American businessman Len Blavatnik, Access Industries has spent the last half a decade quietly establishing itself as something of a power broker in the digital landscape with investments in telecommunications, TV and especially in music. Access surprised many by taking ownership of Warner Music in 2011 for $3.3 billion (including acquiring billions of debt) and then went on to buy up a sizeable chunk of the EMI assets that UMG was compelled to divest by European regulatory authorities. Since that time Access has led, or been a major investor in, $120 million investments in Beats Music (across two rounds), $30 million in Songkick (across two rounds) and $170 million in Deezer (again, across two rounds).

Universal acquires UK metal label Candlelight via Spinefarm

Universal acquires UK metal label Candlelight via Spinefarm | Infos sur le milieu musical international | Scoop.it
Two weeks ago, MBW predicted that 2016 would see Universal start acquiring music companies again after two years of sitting on its hands.

It’s already happened.

The assets of UK-born independent metal label Candlelight, founded in 1993, have this week been acquired by UMG subsidiary Spinefarm.

The move is UMG’s first significant music acquisition since the company snapped up film production specialists Eagle Rock Entertainment in April 2014.

Two years prior to that deal, of course, Universal swooped for EMI Music for £1.2bn, but were set strict restrictive conditions by the EC, and later had to sell Parlophone Label Group to Warner.
