RIP Napster? Rhapsody Buys Subscribers, Assets

RIP Napster? Rhapsody Buys Subscribers, Assets | Music business | Scoop.it

Rhapsody is acquiring Naspter for an undisclosed sum, and grabs the former illegal file sharing service subscribers. It's unclear how many people subscribed to Napster, as it never revealed any number since it was bought buy Best Buy.

 

This might be the beginning of a new trend in digital music services: concentration is going to be a big deal in the coming months and years, as acquiring a critic mass of subscribers is necessary to be break even and generate revenues.

 

The launch of Spotify in the US in July has been a major element for the music industry, probably representing a major shift in the way people consume music. Now, we are still wondering who's going to be the winner in this war.

Deezer part à la conquête du monde sur Facebook, hors Etats-Unis ! - So_cult’ElectronLibre.info

Deezer part à la conquête du monde sur Facebook, hors Etats-Unis ! - So_cult’ElectronLibre.info | Music business | Scoop.it

Un article passionnant par Philippe Astor sur les ambitions internationales de Deezer, qui seront servies par l'intégration plus poussée du service à la plateforme sociale Facebook.

 

L'annonce faite aujourd'hui par le plus grand réseau social au monde semble faire des heureux dans le monde de la musique digitale: la possibilité de partager en temps réel la musique que l'on écoute est envisagée comme un levier majeur des souscriptions aux services de streaming.

 

Également très intéressant, la volonté de Deezer de ne pas se lancer sur le marché américain où certes les attentes sont grandes (voir le succès de Spotify depuis son lancement) mais où la concurrence est bien plus féroce.

 

Deezer souhaite ainsi se lancer à la conquête du monde entier et de profiter de la diversion de Spotify sur le marché américain pour s'implanter dans d'autres pays majeurs.

Bruno Crolot : Why midem had to change | midemblog

Bruno Crolot : Why midem had to change | midemblog | Music business | Scoop.it

Midem had had to change for two main reasons. Firstly, the event didn’t bring as much value to its clients as they deserved. So we reexamined every aspect of the show to check if they delivered true value. This led us to stop certain things, change others and create new features, in order to meet these expectations better and to increase visitors’ return on investment. Hence our most competitive entrance rates ever, including our first ever special offer for artists. More midem for your money, essentially…
Secondly, the music business has become bigger than the music industry alone. So we had to broaden the scope to cover the new actors and business models of this ecosystem; adapt midem to address these new themes and issues; and thereby enrichen the event as a whole.

Lady Gaga goes to Harvard - almost

Lady Gaga goes to Harvard - almost | Music business | Scoop.it

Anita Elberse, professeur à Harvard, s'est penchée sur Lady Gaga pour rédiger un cas à destination de ses étudiants, afin de comprendre comment cette artiste a pu passer de totale inconnue à star internationale en seulement trois ans et deux albums (allez, trois).

 

Réalisé en collaboration avec son manager, mais également de nombreux pontes de son label, ce cas se penche sur les difficultés à mettre en place une stratégie solide pour lancer un artiste.

 

Le cas ne fait que soulever les enjeux sans ne jamais donner de réponse ou préciser ce qui a été effectivement réalisé.

 

Musique mise de côté, beaucoup saluent le travail de marketing réalisée autour de l'artiste depuis son lancement.

Spotify CEO: Free Music Discovery drives engagement and monetization - Albin Serviant

Spotify CEO: Free Music Discovery drives engagement and monetization - Albin Serviant | Music business | Scoop.it
Before I lost my voice earlier today (yes, that’s me up there asking all those questions, NOT Marge Simpson), I sat down with Spotify CEO Daniel Ek at F8. Ek and I spoke about today’s “launch” of Facebook Music, which wasn’t a music console built on top of Facebook like some had conceived, but rather a partnership built around a dozen music apps — like Rdio, Mog and Iheartradio — through Facebook’s now extended Open Graph.

In addition to sharing their own and seeing their friends’ music listening activity in the new Facebook News Ticker, users will eventually see and share all music-related activity in a Music Dashboard in the left hand corner of their Facebook profiles, if they or their friends are using a partner app like Spotify. Users can access the “Listen with a friend” feature we reported on yesterday through either feed by hitting the Play button on their friend’s update.

Responding graciously to my pressing about the rumor I heard that Spotify was to power Facebook’s universal music player, an idea which eventually got scrapped, Ek went on to reveal that, because of the new Facebook integration, Spotify will be removing its invite-only barrier — In addition to giving non-paying users six months of unlimited music listening.
