Can Apple Bring About the End of Free Streaming?

Can Apple Bring About the End of Free Streaming? | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Jimmy Iovine and the major labels are conspiring to get rid of free. Not only the free tier on Spotify, but on YouTube too. Apple writes a check to the labels at 40 million subscribers for years, whether they reach that number or not, and everybody pays for music.

 

 

Pierre Priot's insight:

No doubt Apple, Iovine and Majors want to secure an exclusive revenue feed by killing all free alternatives, may they be legit or pirate.

Dr. Dre could soon become an Apple executive

Dr. Dre could soon become an Apple executive | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

According to Billboard, Apple may introduce both Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine in their new high-up executive roles at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference event next month. Apple is reportedly pursuing an acquisition of Beats Electronics for $3.2 billion, though neither company has gone on record about the deal since it was first publicized last week. The Financial Times originally reported that Apple and Beats could announce the buyout as early as this week, so the companies may choose to wait until the purchase is formally completed before they share more about any influence Dre and Iovine will hold at Apple moving forward. What we know right now is that Dre will be made very rich if the acquisition gets done, though its less clear what his exact duties at Apple will be.

Is Jimmy Iovine  about to sit on top of the world?
