Believe boss: indie music's digital battle is important - and bigger than YouTube

Believe boss: indie music's digital battle is important - and bigger than YouTube | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

My personal view, as CEO of Believe Digital, has always been that properly leveraging the power entrusted in us by our labels and artists is one of the key responsibilities that we have at Believe Digital. If we were to betray that trust by accepting unfair terms or conditions, the viability of our business would be threatened. 
 
It’s important to remember we are a totally independent company representing independent labels and artists and we strive to ensure that our clients are represented properly in the market with no other agenda than to maximize exposure and revenue for them whilst of course growing our business and market share in order to be able to negotiate these deals properly.

 

 

Pierre Priot's insight:

Believe Digital CEO on Youtube vs. Indie Labels: shows solidarity, but has his clients secured by a deal signed back in February.

If you're on Believe's digital roster, you've got your ass covered.

Indie Labels Face YouTube Block Over Unsigned New Terms For Paid Service | TechCrunch | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Looks like YouTube is turning up the heat in its ongoing fight with independent music labels, and some of the most popular artists on the platform. The FT is reporting that Google’s online video portal is planning to start taking down content from artists like Adele, the Arctic Monkeys and thousands of others represented by independent labels, as those labels continue to hold out over new licensing terms that YouTube is putting in place ahead of a new, ad-free paid service that it is launching.

The music industry’s latest big deal might really be about video | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Vevo, the music video service part-owned by record labels, is about to be shopped around to prospective buyers, reports The Information (paywall). According to the report, the company, which is on track to generate $350 million in revenue this year, has engaged Goldman Sachs and the boutique advisory firm Raine Group to “work on a strategic plan and talk to potential suitors.” Bloomberg had a similar story in April. Vevo declined to comment to Quartz.

Official Google Webmaster Central Blog: Musical artists: your official tour dates in the Knowledge Graph

Official Google Webmaster Central Blog: Musical artists: your official tour dates in the Knowledge Graph | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

When music lovers search for their favorite band on Google, we often show them a Knowledge Graph panel with lots of information about the band, including the band’s upcoming concert schedule. It’s important to fans and artists alike that this schedule be accurate and complete. That’s why we’re trying a new approach to concert listings. In our new approach, all concert information for an artist comes directly from that artist’s official website when they add structured data markup.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Cause everything start with a Google  search request, you may wish to ensure that your tour dates are listed there.

Google Glass Gets Into The Music Game

Google Glass Gets Into The Music Game | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

As soon as it came out, the $1,500 futuristic eyewear known as Google Glass became something of a punchline. But the technology now has some music apps that go along with it, and those apps seem pretty fucking cool. Using voice-activated commands, you can now identify a song that you might hear, find that song, buy it, and even search out a place to find that song on vinyl. And in the promotional video below, Jay-Z sound engineer Young Guru does exactly that, hearing a song in a Mexican restaurant and then finding that exact same song on vinyl.

Google Glass as the ultimate digger's swiss army knife

I think this is great the idea of having some glasses that by just akisng it to look something up for you in the internet i mean anything.  You can be sitting in the train and you hear a song that you like you can just touch these glasses and ask for the name of the song and it will give it to you. Lets say you in a diferent country that you dont know the language of good thing you got this glasses thought cause you cant ask these glasses to translate words for you so i think thes glasses are pretty cool.

Google Trialing Music Playback in Search?

It appears that Google might be experimenting with some form of music playback in search results when using its Chrome browser.  In a number of incidents a song or lyrics has been searched for and after a short delay the responding audio file plays in the background.

MP3tunes.com, a service which let users put their personal music collections online in a "locker," then made those songs available on any device, has declared bankruptcy.Founder Michael Robertson blames an expensive and time-consuming four-year legal battle with EMI Records.

EMI sued the company back in 2007, arguing that building this kind of service without licenses was copyright infringement.

Since then, Amazon and Google have launched very similar services with no license agreements. MP3tunes also won a pretty big legal judgment last summer, where a judge basically threw out most of EMI's case.

YouTube: why one significant indie music group HAS signed licensing deal

YouTube: why one significant indie music group HAS signed licensing deal | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

YouTube is famously under fire from a group of leading independent labels for issuing ‘indefensible’ and ‘non-negotiable’ contracts regarding its new subscription service. But fresh evidence tonight shows that other influential indies have enjoyed a much more positive licensing experience with the Google-owned video giant.

A leaked memo sent from leading digital distributor Believe Digital to its clients today, obtained by Music Week, shows that the company signed a deal to license YouTube’s upcoming subscription service back in February - months before recent headline-grabbing disagreements came to light.

Interestingly, Believe says its royalty agreement followed a full six months of progressive, if intense, negotiations with YouTube, in talks dating back to September 2013.

The Deal With Independent Music Getting Pulled from YouTube « Saving Country Music

The Deal With Independent Music Getting Pulled from YouTube « Saving Country Music | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

ere’s there long and short of the current problem: Just like iTunes, Beats, Amazon, your local school district, and your refrigerator repair company, YouTube has decided it’s getting into the digital streaming music service too. Ironically, YouTube is one of the companies that already has a significant chunk of the digital streaming market, and one of the most significant footprints in the business. It’s just not in a convenient delivery form like its competitors. Look at the chart below, graciously provided to us by the industrious folks at Edison Research. Yes that’s right, not radio, not Spotify, not iTunes or their friends at school, but YouTube is the place that music’s coveted 12-24 year-old demographic goes most to discover new music.

 

 

Pierre Priot's insight:

Kids you must understand this: Google kicking independent artists out of Youtube would bring back the music industry back into the 80ies, when only mainstream acts could get massive exposure.

No doubt major companies will dig this....

BBC: YouTube's new music service is shortchanging independent acts - Engadget | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Who's going to argue that stuffing a veritable world of music in your pocket isn't awesome? Probably very few. One of the downsides to the digital age, though, is that musicians often get the short end of the stick when it comes to payment. Spotify and Pandora's per-song pay rates for most artists are abysmal, and based on a BBC report, YouTube's rumored music service won't be much better. If true, the video giant's business tactics aren't exactly honorable, either.

Youtube doesn't negociate.
