Robin Good's curator insight, December 13, 2012 11:43 AM


Chill.com has introduced a new interesting service allowing independent content creators of all kinds to sell their own productions easily.


From the original article on GigaOM: "Los Angeles-based Chill.com launched a DRM-free content marketplace for independent creators on Thursday, letting content owners sell streams and HD downloads of their movies, live comedy recordings and other types of videos directly to consumers.


The site’s approach mimics an idea first pioneered by Louis CK a year ago, when the comedian sold a DRM-free download of one of his live sets for $5 online


The new offering, dubbed Chill Direct, is a self-serve marketplace, meaning that anyone can sign up within minutes. The site offers creators the option to determine their own price for their videos, and charge anywhere from $1.99 to $49.99. Seventy percent of that revenue is handed to the creator, and Chill retains 30 percent, which cover the fees for payment services as well as hosting."

Guerilla Marketing For Your Facebook Fan Pages | Social Media Today

Guerilla Marketing For Your Facebook Fan Pages | Social Media Today | Show Up Public | Scoop.it

et’s bust a few Facebook marketing myths right away: you can’t grow your “likes” and “fans” in 3 months starting today. You can’t bulldoze your way through it. Throwing money at it won’t buy you love and hence you can’t grow your fans by buying them. You can’t force someone to “like” your business page on Facebook. Yet, Facebook fan page likes are precious. For one, Facebook fan pages promise a “viral spread” for your content. When fans “like” something, your content spreads into their friends’ list and so on. Further, fan page “likes” also have a possible dollar value associated with it. Here are some smart ways to get likes using traditional, good old hustle instead of gaming the system....

Napster: the day the music was set free | Show Up Public | Scoop.it
As a new film tells the story of Napster, Tom Lamont recalls the incredible sense of liberation he felt as a young music fan, suddenly able to download any record he wanted

Via Pierre Priot
Hack Your Craft's insight:

My god, the intellectual arrogance of the Napster generation of tweens now grown. The question has always been for me, free music to do what exactly? Sit on your desktop and rot?. The narcissism around p2p sharing is absurd. The thing is I'm not mad at the idea of free music, but it is still presently an undertheorized in practice. Freedom doesn't mean it should be culturally cheapened. How do you combat the greedy excesses of the industry with the excesses of an individual. Anyway, my 2cents.

Autre solution pour faire des économies, le digital media : livres numériques et audios, journaux, magazines, films, clips et autre musique ont été dématérialisés pour faire gagner de la place et de l’argent. Quid de ces fichiers qui prennent non pas la poussière mais grignotent l’espace de stockage de vos appareils ? La start-up Bostonienne ReDigi a pensé à un ingénieux système de Marketplace pour les fichiers MP3, avis donc aux détenteurs des ces fichiers, la plateforme débarque prochainement en Europe.

Entrepreneurial Lessons From Google All-Star and Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer

Entrepreneurial Lessons From Google All-Star and Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer | Show Up Public | Scoop.it

Fascinating profile of Yahoo CEO Marisa Mayer... When Mayer graduated from Stanford in 1999, she had 14 job offers waiting for her. She chose Google and remained with the company for 13 years. She went through the startup years, all the way through the IPO, and, in many ways, was the key spokesperson for the company. So considering that she’s one of the top in tech, there are some things we can learn from her. She has over a decade of experience and has worked with very talented people who have built great products. Let’s get into what she recommends for entrepreneurs, product managers, and everyone in between....

LocEmotion and Making Music Move Forward | MusicianCorps Founder Gives TEDx Talk

Hack Your Craft's insight:

I loved this TEdx talk.  MusicianCorps CEO Kiff Gallagher is hitting on an idea that could be expanded through and in collaboration with his organization. We need more portals in which commercial music is funneled into everyday life beyond the party and headphone apparel. These portals in part could be managed by non-profits in partnership with for profits, but sometimes the culture of each erect walls to limit the effect of currency running between the two. Maybe, there is cultural profit that can be funneled back into capital profit and the two could work in more effective harmony. Just a little theorectical brainstorm while I listening to Mieka Pauley on bandcamp.com/miekapauley.

Music Industry Data: Sales Up, Piracy Down... But It's Not Because Of Any 'Anti-Piracy' Efforts | Techdirt

Music Industry Data: Sales Up, Piracy Down... But It's Not Because Of Any 'Anti-Piracy' Efforts | Techdirt | Show Up Public | Scoop.it

A few folks have sent over variations on two different reports concerning the music industry, with some suggesting that this is "proof" that the recording industry's "war on piracy" has been effective on two fronts: increasing sales and reducing piracy. Of course, for many years, we've questioned whether or not reducing piracy actually increases sales, so we looked closely at the numbers and they don't seem to say what some people think they're saying. The Hollywood Reporter has a good summary of both reports. One comes from IFPI, celebrating that "global recorded music revenue" rose 0.3% in 2012. That is, obviously, a tiny increase, but it is an increase. Of course, as we've noted, "recorded" music revenue is merely one piece of the wider music industry ecosystem -- and that entire ecosystem has been growing for quite some time.

The second report comes from one of the industry's favorite researchers, NPD, claiming a massive decline in music file sharing (based on consumer surveys). I've found NPD's data to be suspect in the past, but let's just assume this is true. Then, can we reach the conclusion that the industry's anti-piracy efforts both worked and that it led to increased sales?

Actually... no. Not even close. We can see this pretty clearly just by looking beyond the recorded music market, to the wider file sharing space. Various reports have made it clear that widespread file sharing (mostly of infringing content) has continued to grow quite rapidly during the same time period. Sandvine reports (pdf) that BitTorrent traffic increased 40% over the same basic time frame. Or, zero in on a different market beyond music. How about software? The BSA's annual report continues to show increases in "piracy."

Albert Lochard's curator insight, December 7, 2014 6:55 PM

This article is present you two examples on how music piracy is slowly decreasing. They mentioned  that global recorded music revenue rose 0.3% in 2012. In my opinion this is a very small percentage but at least it's going up, slowly but surely. I'm glad to see that the war against music piracy is actually working.
