YouTube: 1 Billion Viewers, No Profit

YouTube: 1 Billion Viewers, No Profit | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
YouTube accounted for about 6% of Google’s overall sales last year, but the video website doesn’t produce a profit—despite a billion monthly users. New efforts to build ad revenue include tapping into Google’s search data, subscriptions for non-music content and other changes.

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.

I'm Charlotte Church. And This Is How Women Are Routinely Demoralized by the Music Industry... - Digital Music News | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

I’d like you to imagine a world in which male musicians are routinely expected to act as submissive sex objects.  Picture Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z stripped down to a T-back bikini thong, sex kittin’ his way through a boulevard of suited-and-booted women for their pleasure.  Or Britney Spears’ ex, Justin Timberlake, in buttocks-clenching hot pants writhing on top of a pink Chevy, explaining to an audience how he’d like to be their ‘Teenage Dream’.

Pierre Priot's insight:

"It is a male-dominated industry, with a juvenile perspective on gender and sexuality."
It's about time the Record Industry grows up!
