Business Matters: Artist Happiness as a Long-Term Investment | Billboard.biz

Business Matters: Artist Happiness as a Long-Term Investment | Billboard.biz | Music Tech Start Up | Scoop.it

Jon Webster, CEO of the Music Managers Forum (MMF), argues the European Commission looked at competition only in its "naked form" when reviewing the merger. Financiers do the same, says Webster, head of the organization of U.K.-based artist managers whose members represents Paul McCartney, Mumford & Sons, Chemical Brothers, Elton John, Kaiser Chiefs, Damien Rice and many others. "They look at it in very cold, economic terms."

Strike? There's no other way: Blur lead pop protest over sale of label

Strike? There's no other way: Blur lead pop protest over sale of label | Music Tech Start Up | Scoop.it

Some of Britain's top-selling musicians may withhold their future albums in protest against being treated as "assets" in the forced sale of their label, The Independent can disclose.

 

Dave Rowntree, drummer with Blur, told The Independent: "Artists are the only people currently being left out of the conversation, which is unfortunate. If the staff at the label are unhappy with the new arrangements they are free to leave, but the artists are not."

 

Rowntree is backing negotiations through the Featured Artists Coalition (FAC), a pop stars "trade union", supported by Lily Allen and Radiohead.

Myspace’s new design actually has people excited

Myspace’s new design actually has people excited | Music Tech Start Up | Scoop.it

When advertising firm Specific Media bought Myspace – complete with investment from Justin Timberlake – it’s fair to say the most common reaction was a shrug. Dying brand, no chance of a comeback.

 

Yet if you thought of Myspace less as a falling social network, and more as (potentially) the largest music discovery site in the world, there was a glimmer of hope. Well, a video teaser of the new Myspace has fuelled that hope.

 

As one heavily-retweeted Twitter user put it: “Instagram + Pinterest + Windows 8 + Justin Timberlake = SexyBack”. It’s very beautiful, heavy on images, and light on clutter. Music remains a key ingredient too, with mixes, trending artists and songs, a radio option and a whole section spotlighting ‘This week’s Top Fans’.
