“The software is functioning as intended,” said Amber. “Wait,” I asked, “so it’s supposed to delete my personal files from my internal hard drive without asking my permission?” “Yes,” she replied.

Apprendre l'art de la guerre digitale

Je suis, depuis 15 ans, une observatrice neutre de ces jeux de pouvoir, je les décode pour mes clients, je suis une sorte de "netnologue". En théorie, ces armes sont à la disposition de tous mais en réalité, elles sont bien mieux maîtrisées par une minorité de dogmatiques ou les GAFA. Comme l'a dit Xavier Delaporte, c'est un pharmakon. C’est-à-dire que c'est à la fois le remède et le poison, une arme pour détruire, un outil pour construire. Mon ambition est que ces techniques soient connues du plus grand nombre pour que le remède soit supérieur au poison, pour un progrès partagé.

New Talent Emerges From Belgian Cinema Scene

Although the Dardenne brothers cast a long shadow over French-language Belgian cinema, a new saviour emerged just last year. Premiering in Directors’ Fortnight, Jaco Van Dormael’s religious comedy “The Brand New Testament” – in which God lives with his feisty daughter in modern-day Brussels – not only became a cult hit internationally, it also brought in the elusive domestic attendances that will enable the indigenous film industry to grow.

YouTube and the music business: Sympathy For The Devil (Pt. 2)

MBW notes that YouTube paid out $634m to music rights holders; but if music content makes up a third of all views, surely that figure should have been $1.6bn?

Here’s why: YouTube is not optimized for Total Views, it is optimized for Watch Time, which is about user engagement and encouraging users to stick around and watch more content. Channel subscriptions have a huge impact on Watch Time and as Mark Mulligan notes, music massively underperforms on channel subscriptions relative to other creators and especially native YouTubers.

Online video 'value gap' severely damages streaming payouts in France

According to figures communicated by BPI and Snep, roughly the same number of music streams were played in the UK and France in 2015: 54 billion in the former, 50 billion in the latter.

Yet when you crunch these numbers further, something isn’t right.

In 2015, the UK’s 53.7 billion streams consisted of a 50 – 50 split between audio and video.

Yet in France, the breakdown between audio and video streams was an unbalanced 35% – 65% split in favour of video.

DAO, la première société de financement participatif dématérialisée grâce à la blockchain

DAO est présenté comme un modèle pour un nouveau type d’organisation, créé et exécuté à l’aide du logiciel blockchain plutôt que par des structures d’entreprise classiques. Elle change de paradigme dans l’idée même de l’organisation économique, puisqu’elle offre une transparence complète, le contrôle total des actionnaires, de la flexibilité, ainsi qu’une gouvernance autonome, car l’ensemble des opérations et décisions sont inscrites dans le code source de la blockchain, elle-même régie par la technologie algorithmique. N’importe qui peut donc investir dans DAO.

YouTube is paying less than £0.0009 per stream to UK record labels 

We got good news back in January when we learned that, at a retail level, the UK’s recorded music industry grew 3.5% in 2015.

Today, a reality check: the money which then made its way to labels from sales and streaming actually fell 0.9% in the year to £688m ($1bn), says the BPI.

When performance rights are folded in, total label income did rise by a sliver (0.6%) in 2015 – some positive news, but meager consolation when new startling figures about YouTube are considered.

According to the BPI’s new Music Market 2016 yearbook, 26.9 billion video streams of music (across YouTube and Vevo) were measured by the Official Charts Company in 2015, up 88% on the year before.

Meanwhile, audio streams grew at a slightly slower pace. They were up 82% to 26.6bn streams.

That meant Vevo and YouTube were responsible for more than 50% of all on-demand music streams in the year – up on the 49% these services claimed in 2014.

Bientôt la fin des attachés de presse ?

À une époque qui nous paraît aussi lointaine que le règne de Louis XIV, les attachés de presse avaient le pouvoir de verrouiller la promo. Aujourd’hui, nombre de vedettes internationales (du hip-hop à feu Bowie) mettent en ligne leurs nouveaux albums par surprise, en prenant parfois de cours jusqu’à leurs labels. Quant à nous, il nous arrive de chroniquer des disques qu’on a téléchargé sans les demander aux maisons de disques ; et, quand on doit interviewer les loustics, on les contacte de plus en plus souvent directement via Facebook ou autre… Dans ces conditions, les attachés de presse ne sont plus que de simples spectateurs. Vont-ils se reconvertir comme concierges ?

Amazon takes on YouTube with new rival Amazon Video Direct 

Amazon is going head-to-head with YouTube, launching a new online video platform which gives content owners a variety of distribution – and payment – options.

Amazon Video Direct (AVD) launches today as an enhancement to Amazon Video – the home of paid-for Netflix rival Amazon Prime Video.

We’re told that customers in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Austria and Japan ‘now have access to new movies, TV shows, docu-series and music videos from content creators’.

However, no recorded music companies have so far been named as official launch partners.

Alarm bells for the music business may already be going off: Amazon has given detail as to how content owners can upload videos onto AVD – but how they take them down in the case of copyright infringement is another matter.

Independent publishers fight against market concentration - and for more streaming cash 

The Independent Music Publishers Forum (IMPF) was officially founded at Midem two years ago, and now counts more than 50 rights-holders as members.

They include Bucks Music Group, Reservoir/Reverb Music, Sugarmusic, Budde Music, SONGS Music Publishing, Wixen Music Publishing, ABKCO, Bicycle Music Company and Downtown Music Publishing.

Pierre Mossiat, CEO at Strictly Confidential and another founder member, Annette Barrett of Reservoir/Reverb tell MBW that IMPF was partly created to ensure the independents had a voice on the board of the ICMP – the global trade body representing music publishers’ interests.

Says Mossiat: “We realised that the reaction to our creation may be: ‘Another trade association?!’ But we had the feeling that a few questions were not being answered for us [at ICMP].

“ICMP is doing important things that we don’t always understand or have input into. As independents, we have to have an eye on regulations, but that’s time-consuming and expensive – and ICMP is a perfect tool to manage it, so long as it’s not only in major interests.”

Belgium blocks ticket resale sites

A Belgian judge has ordered the country’s internet service providers (ISPs) to block access to three secondary ticket outlets in response to widespread fraud by resellers.
Touts used Topticketshop, Rang1Tickets.nl and Tickets België to sell €400,000 worth of fraudulent tickets to concerts by artists including Adele and girl band K3 which were duplicated on a number of other, primarily Dutch, websites. Consumer affairs minister Kris Peeters (pictured), who led the investigation, says the deception was “striking and undeniable”.
