Band Aid 30 recorded, debuted and on sale now
So what did we learn this weekend? Well, mainly that, while God is happy to accept thanks for ensuring famine remains confined to a distant continent, he's not so keen on being praised for guaranteeing the same for a mind-numbingly horrific killer disease. Which is good to know. I'm glad Bono got the memo.

But look at me, mildly mocking the cause-necessary rewrites to 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' as recorded by popstars past and present under the Band Aid 30 banner this weekend. Let's face it, the somewhat questionable lyrics of the now four-times recorded ultimate British charity hit have been plenty documented before, pretty much ever since the original version was released three decades ago in fact.

And this weekend's rewrites - necessary because the beneficiary cause is fighting ebola rather than famine - removed some of the most questioned lyrics. For example, the usually (and again this time) Bono sung bit "well tonight thank God it's them instead of you" becomes "well tonight we're reaching out and touching you".

Some of the reworked words are a bit clumsy on paper, but that's not really the point is it? And once again Bob Geldof has cleverly gathered together an ensemble of popstars that will pull in the maximum possible audience for his message and fund-raising mission. And if the opening seconds of the Band Aid 30 video aired on ITV's 'X-Factor' last night don't convince you that this is a cause that should be supported, well little will.

And while - as Damon Albarn pointed out in an interview with 'Channel 4 News' this weekend - blindly throwing money at distant countries doesn't always fix the problems there, if you read just some of the excellent coverage of the ebola epidemic in recent issues of The Economist (this one's a good starting point), you'll see that, in this case the immediate problem is a lack of healthcare and infrastructure, and raising money quick will help.

So why not download the bloody song from iTunes here? Or maybe watch it on YouTube and then make a donation via the Band Aid 30 website here. Hell, why not do both? Bono promises to not be all smug when it goes to number one and raises millions for the cause.

Bail conditions tightened for MegaUpload founder
MegaUpload founder Kim Dotcom is facing a number of new temporary conditions to his bail following some significant developments in his long-running battle with the US authorities, which want to extradite him from New Zealand to face criminal copyright proceedings relating to his former business venture back in the States.

Dotcom's full extradition hearing has been long long delayed - it's nearly three years since his controversial file-transfer business was shut down by the US authorities - and the whole thing will now be subject to further delays after the former MegaUpload chief's New Zealand legal team bailed on his case last week.

Dotcom's American attorney, Ira Rothken, has admitted that leading New Zealand law firm Simpson Grierson and barrister Paul Davison QC withdrawing from his client's case poses a "difficult challenge". Dotcom's extradition hearing has been pushed back again as a result of this latest development, to next June, though Rothken reckons that that won't be enough time for whoever the Mega team appoint to replace their former New Zealand legal reps to prepare.

Meanwhile, earlier today a court put new restrictions on Dotcom amidst reports that he is accused of breaking previous bail conditions. According to local media reports, the Auckland District Court has banned Dotcom from travelling more than 80km from his home, and from using helicopters or boats, plus he'll have to report to police on a daily basis. Torrentfreak reckons that prosecutors have actually called for Dotcom to be jailed again pending extradition, based on the bail term breach allegations, a proposal that will be considered by a judge next week.

Linking to reports on the new bail conditions forced upon him, and possibly also alluding to the loss of his New Zealand legal reps, his unsuccessful political adventures, and having to cut ties with his new Mega and Baboom businesses to assure their success, Dotcom tweeted yesterday: "This year was a total disaster. I have taken many punches. But I won't break. I will keep going through this hell for my kids. Count on it".

By comparison, news last week that Dotcom's own account on the Mega platform had been terminated, seemingly after a prankster kept filing fake copyright takedown notices against his account, probably isn't concerning the Mega man too much.

Rolling Stones settle insurance claim dispute
The Rolling Stones have settled a dispute over an insurance claim made by the band after they cancelled a number of Australian shows earlier this year in the wake of the death of Mick Jagger's partner L'Wren Scott.

As previously reported, the Stones claimed on their insurance policy under a clause covering cancellations caused by the death of a family member, a clause in which Scott was specifically named. However, underwriters refused to pay out on the multi-million dollar claim, arguing that Scott may have been suffering from a pre-existing but undeclared mental illness that led to her taking her own life.

The insurance company launched an investigation to obtain more information relating to this allegation, and in related court papers revealed that Jagger had been diagnosed with acute traumatic stress disorder in the wake of his partner's death and was told by doctors that he should not perform for at least 30 days.

In a statement to the Telegraph last week, a spokesperson for the band said: "We are deeply upset that confidential medical and other private information about members of the band and their immediate family and loved ones has entered the public domain as a result of a court filing initiated by insurers four weeks ago. This was done without the knowledge of the band or reference to their legal representatives".

They added: "This has only been discovered and reported in the press in the last week, by which time we are pleased to say the insurers and the Rolling Stones had, in fact, settled the insurance claim. No further comment will be made about this matter".

Former Bertelsmann chief jailed for misconduct at retail and travel firm
A former boss of BMG owner Bertelsmann was last week sentenced to three years in jail relating to allegations he misused funds belonging to German retail and travel group Arcandor, which he led from 2005 until its collapse in 2009.

According to the Financial Times, Thomas Middelhoff was accused of breach of trust over 800,000 euros in expenses paid by Arcandor. The costs mainly related to private jet flights the CEO took from Germany to London and New York, and helicopter trips from Middelhoff's home to the company's HQ in Essen, none of which, prosecutors argued, should have been charged to the flagging business.

Middlehoff denied the allegations saying he joined Arcandor in a bid to save the company and the jobs of the people working for its various subsidiaries, but the judge hearing the case said the former exec had given "fanciful explanations" for his conduct during the trial.

Prior to the collapse of Arcandor, Middelhoff was best known for his twelve years with German media and entertainment giant Bertelsmann, which included four years as CEO before his departure in 2002. It was during his tenure at the top that Bertelsmann attempted its controversial and ultimately unsuccessful move to help the original Napster company go legit as it faced crippling litigation from the rest of the music industry.

Bieber accused of new pap attack, this time in Argentina
That Justin Bieber's been so quiet of late, hasn't he? We've barely heard a peep out of him, save for the occasional mention that he's been making some music with Cody Simpson. It's been lovely. But his (still pretty recent) past as something of a hell raiser is never far away. And so, once again, he is in trouble for allegedly attacking a photographer a year ago.

In his quest to pick up a pap attack charge in every country in the world, this one comes from Argentina. According to Argentine news agency Telam, a judge in the country, Facundo Cubas, last week asked Interpol to track down the singer and one of his guards, over accusations that they assaulted a photographer, Diego Facundo Weigle, and another unnamed cameraman, and then took their cameras and mobile phones at a club called Ink in Bueno Aires.

Bieber and the bodyguard are required to respond to the accusations within 60 days, or Judge Cubas may order their arrest.

The alleged incident occurred in November last year, during the same South American trip where Bieber visited some, er, local entrepreneurs at a brothel in Rio, eventually inviting two of them back to his hotel to further discuss business matters. Bieber later pulled out halfway through a show he was performing in Rio after someone threw a bottle at him.

Federation Of Small Businesses says concerns remain with music industry's public performance licensing
The Federation Of Small Businesses reckons that the music industry's performing right collecting societies still have some way to go in improving the way they work with small to middle sized enterprises, despite acknowledging some improvements in recent years.

Any company which plays music on its premises requires a public performance licence, of course, though the industry provides blanket licences to such users via its collecting societies. PPL licenses the copyright in the sound recordings (owned or repped by labels) while PRS For Music handles the separate rights in the songs (owned and repped by publishers), and most businesses need licences from both.

The UK government has, in recent years, put some pressure on collecting societies from across the content industries to adopt and live up to 'minimum standards' of service to licensees. And on the back of the 2011 Hargreaves Review of the UK copyright system, new laws backing said minimum standards went through earlier this year, though both PPL and PRS had already updated their own codes of conduct to bring them in line with post-Hargreaves standards back in 2012.

But citing its own research, the FSB said last week that it had found nearly a quarter of its members with a collecting society licence had made a complaint of some sort about the collective licensing system. The Federation added: "The findings also show the lack of progress towards achieving greater transparency and simplicity of charges over the past twelve months. Without such progress, trust amongst small businesses in the current system will be undermined".

Of course, the collecting societies play a role akin to the tax man, so are always going to have critics amongst licensees who resent paying anything to play music in public, though most people within the industry agree music licensing remains too complex and might agree there is still someway to go in better explaining and structuring how it all works.

But the FSB did concede that the music communities' societies had made "improvements to the accuracy of information used" and welcomed efforts by PPL and PRS to collaborate on some licences, meaning some licensees could now cover all music rights through a one-stop shop licence.

Nevertheless, FSB National Chairman John Allan told reporters last week: "Although collecting societies have a strong code of conduct in place, we are not convinced they are making enough progress in meeting their own standards. This research should be seen as a warning sign that without faster change, small business will start seeking stronger regulation of the industry".

SFX to streamline operations with redundancies likely, though revenues up almost 200% in Q3
After a period of rapid expansion, SFX Entertainment CEO Robert Sillerman said in an earnings call last week that the company now plans to "consolidate many of our operations" with a "reduction in workforce" likely.

This follows the announcement of the company's Q3 finances on Friday, which saw revenues for the group increase by 194.5% to $134.5 million, boosted mainly by is festivals business. Just 20% came from sources outside its live events, such as the Beatport download platform, marketing businesses and ticketing system, reports Billboard. 30 of the 82 festivals the company owns took place in the period being reported.

As previously reported, last month SFX's share price dropped following the publication of a disputed article that claimed the company was on the verge of bankruptcy. Meanwhile in March some investor's questioned the company's status.

Uber and Spotify alliance expected
So, turns out Taylor Swift should team up with that cabbie who drove me home last week, cos he's definitely as angry about Uber and she is about Spotify, and now the two digital hypemachines are teaming up.

Yep, taxi app whatnot (technical term) Uber is expected to announce an alliance with the Spotifys later today which will mean that people booking a car via the former will soon be able to listen to music from their playlists on the latter for the duration of their taxi journeys. Which means you'll no longer be able to blame your intimate knowledge of the current Magic playlist on your taxi driver.

The specifics about the partnership are not yet clear. But media types have been invited to sit in on a conference call with Uber chief Travis Kalanick later today and it's thought Spotify boss man Daniel Ek may be there too. The first hack to ask what Swift fans are meant to listen to during their taxi rides will be teleported into a black cab on the Euston Road and forced to pick up the tab once they reach their destination.

Vevo boss standing down
The CEO of music video platform Vevo, Rio Caraeff, is stepping down, it's been confirmed. Caraeff's departure comes as the Sony/Universal owned video service approaches its fifth birthday. According to a staff memo published by Re/code, CFO Alan Price will head up the company while a full-time replacement for the outgoing Chief Exec is recruited.

In the memo, which mainly consists of Caraeff bigging up his team, the Vevo chief writes: "There are times in life when there is no other way to say it other than to just come out with it. So here goes. After nearly six years, I have decided to depart Vevo at the end of this year. What is next for me? I do not yet know but I will take a moment to clear my head and when the time is right, my passion will guide and I will jump back in".

Vevo will issue a formal statement through its own channels later today, but presumably most people will see it via YouTube.

Final CMU Insights course of the year upcoming
Two weeks today it will be December, which is scary, but it will also see the final of our CMU Insights evening seminar programmes kick off, a three-parter covering all things copyright.

As CMU Business Editor and course leader Chris Cooke said in a recent CMU Digest report: "There is a tendency in music companies to assume that everyone understands copyright, which means people who work there tend to nod and smile when copyright is mentioned, and then carry on regardless in the hope nobody finds out how little they know about intellectual property law".

He goes on: "Day to day this ignorance doesn't matter, because the legal guys look after any deals and contracts where copyright specifics are dealt with. But when an industry is in flux, and when it is having to defend its copyrights, this ignorance becomes a major weakness. After all, how can you expect the world at large to understand and appreciate copyright, if you can't even teach your own people".

Over three two-hour sessions CMU Insights will give you all the basics, and up date you on the latest trends and debates, on music rights and the music rights sector. Places are just £125 and can be booked here.

Meanwhile, for information on CMU's in-house training services click here, and for more information on the there mentioned CMU Digest premium service click here.

  Approved: Alex Calder
You can throw all kinds of descriptive words and phrases at Alex Calder that'd stick. 'Lo fi' maybe, 'dream-pop' certainly, 'Mac DeMarco-like' inevitably. Still, the facts are these: Calder is 23, from Edmonton, Alberta in Canada, and writes pop songs part time in addition to studying the culinary arts. This is his food blog, Alex Calder Eats, and this is a photo of him passed out on the bare ground, look.

Having shaped the basic terrain of his light-headed psych stylings whilst playing for a short while with DeMarco in his Makeout Videotape phase - self-releasing the brilliant 'Ying Yang' tape in 2010 - Calder is now signed to Captured Tracks and fronting his own band, all that parallel to his ongoing other life as 'alternative rock' artiste and 'Your Mom' hitmaker Mold Boy.

So that's a short and, now I read it back, slightly dry history... now for some tracks! First is 'Strange Dreams', the woozily mechanical title song to Calder's excellent latest LP, and after that - no way! - is a link to swallow the album whole care of Spotify.

AC/DC's Angus Young on Phil Rudd arrest: "He's got himself in a pickle"
AC/DC's Angus Young has said that he and the rest of the band have had no contact with on-off drummer Phil Rudd following the latter's arrest earlier this month, adding that Rudd has "got himself in a pickle". Which is putting it a bit lightly but still, I guess it sums up the basic jist of what's going on.

Speaking to The Daily Mail last week in the midst of a promo campaign for AC/DC's incoming LP 'Rock Or Bust', Young said that Rudd's behaviour had become unreliable while the band were still in the studio making that same album.

"Well, we had a few problems", he explained. "The situation he's in - that took everyone by surprise. We had a few issues before with him, even when we were recording it was hard even to get to him to do the recording".

Young continued: "And then he was supposed to show up to do promos with us, to do video shoots and a few shoots and a few other things, and he never showed up for that either. So, at this stage, it's a pretty tough call for us".

As to carrying on with 'Rock Or Bust' without Rudd, he said: "We were resolved for us to go forward and I think Phil's got - it's something he's got to do himself. He's got to sort himself out, I think. But we were resolved to go forward. So at this point it's kind of a question mark. But if we're touring, there will be a drummer in place, put it that way".

As previously reported, Rudd was charged with threatening to kill and possession of methamphetamine and marijuana - and also initially a so-called 'murder for hire charge' that was quickly dropped - following a police raid on his New Zealand home. He will appear in court on 27 Nov.

Mac DeMarco arrested mid-show after being mistaken for a troublemaker
A Mac DeMarco show at the University Of Santa Barbara was cut short on Friday night after the musician was arrested on stage by police.

The 100 capacity gig apparently had an unusually high police and campus security presence, reports the Santa Barbara Independent. Earlier in the show, various people were escorted out of the venue for fighting, with one man arrested. Another woman was also charged with resisting arrest after being removed for "moshing".

But the real disruption to the show came after DeMarco crowdsurfed across the venue and perched himself on beams in the ceiling. After coming down and making his way back to the stage, he was arrested and removed from the building. Which is always going to be a problem for a performance.

According to a police spokesperson, it was only when DeMarco was outside that they realised he was the night's entertainment.

The musician later posted a photograph of his arrest to Instagram.
