Rightscorp settles class action over its phone calls to suspected pirates
Having seen one of its clients - BMG - score a significant win against US internet service provider Cox Communications last year, anti-piracy firm Rightscorp is conceding in another legal battle. It has settled a class action that accused the company of breaking American telecommunication laws by calling and texting suspected pirates.

As much previously reported, Rightscorp's tactics for chasing people suspected of accessing or sharing unlicensed content online have been criticised in various quarters.

Cox Communications - when accused by BMG of being liable for its customers' copyright infringement by basically refusing to work with Rightscorp to tackle infringers - relied heavily in its unsuccessful defence on the controversies that had surrounded the anti-piracy agency's practices. Though the judge hearing the case stopped Cox from dubbing Rightscorp a 'copyright troll' in court.

The anti-piracy tactic causing controversy in this other case was Rightscorp using automated phone calls and/or text messages to chase accused file-sharers. Rightscorp would subpoena a suspected infringer's contact details from their ISP, write to that suspected infringer demanding they stop infringing and pay a fine for past infringement, and then follow up the letter with calls or texts demanding the recipient respond.

Two of the people targeted with such correspondence - both of whom denied the allegations of copyright infringement made against them - said that Rightscorp had "wilfully violated" the US Telephone Consumer Protection Act with the calls and texts. Because, their lawsuit added, the law requires companies to have a recipient's consent before making automated calls or sending texts.

Had the lawsuit prevailed in court, Rightscorp could have faced paying damages between $500 and $1500 to each person who received calls or texts without permission, and there were over 2000 members of the class once the legal action gained momentum.

But the case won't now proceed to court, because Rightscorp has agreed to settle. And while neither the anti-piracy firm nor those clients also named as defendants admit any wrongdoing in the settlement, Rightscorp agrees to stop using automated calls or texts without a recipient's permission, while setting aside $450,000 to cover the costs of the litigation to date and to pay $100 to each class member.

Those class members will have to declare that they didn't infringe any of Rightscorp clients' copyright works as part of the settlement. By doing so, said clients will drop any outstanding copyright claims against each class member, so they won't face any further demands for payment from the rights owners.

Both parties filed settlement papers with the courts late last week, which included details of a claims process for class members seeking their $100.

Marty Bandier extends his time at the top of the Sony/ATV tree
Sony/ATV CEO Marty Bandier has agreed to renew his contract with the world's biggest music publisher, meaning he will both continue to run the business and take on the weighty task of having the word 'Chairman' as well as 'CEO' written on his business cards.

All this only took eight months to agree, following reports last May that talks were underway to extend the industry veteran's contract, with a rumoured $7 million a year remuneration package. Which is a lot of Spotify streams. I do hope Sony/ATV is getting in all its mechanical royalties OK.

Obviously the official confirmation that Bandier's contract had been extended didn't sully itself with talk of money, so we don't know precisely how much loot he managed to bag for himself. But he did said he was "thrilled" about the deal. So either he did very well for himself indeed or he just OK-ed a lazy press release quote written for him by the PR machine without even thinking about it all that much. Or maybe it was both. Imagine if it was both. What an exciting world we live in.

Anyway, here are the words Bandier is now apparently shouting from the rooftops: "I am THRILLED to continue my role at Sony/ATV Music Publishing and continuing to work with a talented group of colleagues. Since my arrival, we have become the number one music publisher and I am proud to say we represent many of the world's best-loved songs alongside some of its greatest songwriters".

Sony/ATV is, of course, a joint venture between Sony Entertainment and the Michael Jackson estate. Or at least it is for now. Both are apparently interested in buying the other out of the business. Which would be interesting. Especially if it was Sony that was bought out of the venture, making the most powerful music publisher independent of any entity with an interest in recorded music. But for now Bandier is assuring he stays in the good books of both his shareholders.

"I would like to thank Sony and John Branca and John McClain, the co-executors of the estate of Michael Jackson, for their support and confidence in me", he gushed in the latter moments of his latest PR quotage. "And I am looking forward to sharing many more successes with them over the next few years".

Ah, isn't that nice? It's all about the sharing. But what about the sharers? We're they also excited about this exciting news? "Marty Bandier is a legend in the music industry", Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton declared, loudly and boldly. "And we are THRILLED that he will continue his work at Sony/ATV". So, pretty excited then. "Since he first joined in 2007, the company has reached amazing heights, and we expect that it will continue to flourish under his guidance".

Ah, isn't that nice? It's all about the flourishing. But the real excitement was over at the offices of the Jackson Estate, where an emotional Branca and McClain hummed in unison: "Renewing Marty's relationship with Sony/ATV avails the estate of his enormous creative and executive talents as we strategically and profitably meet the challenges of our evolving business".

Ah, isn't that nice? It's all about the strategically and profitably meeting of challenges.

GEMA exec to head up ICE's cross-border repertoire management system
If you thought that senior appointments to the new PRS/GEMA/STIM super-duper cross-border music-licensing-mash-up ICE had been rather PRS heavy to date (we previously reported on PRS's Robert Ashcroft and PRS's Ben McEwen and PRS's Neil Jones all taking on ICE roles), well, good news for GEMA fans this morning.

The German collecting society has announced that one of its staffers, Jörn Radloff, has been appointed Head Of Rightsholder Management for ICE Services. Radloff was involved in putting together the all-new ICE venture, and in his new permanent role he will seek to "further develop ICE's rights and repertoire management system and strategically build up its database of international repertoires". Which is good. I do love some strategic building.

As previously reported, the new ICE venture expands an existing partnership between PRS and STIM, which used the same name. The new ICE business will seek to license all three societies' song catalogues to multi-territory digital services (except where publishers are doing it direct), to process income from those platforms, and to combine all three organisation's song ownership data to ensure more efficient payments. It will operate three divisions: ICE Licensing, ICE Services and ICE Operations.

Confirming Radloff's new role, GEMA CEO Harald Heker said: "We're pleased that Jörn will join ICE right at the core where I know his experience will be very valuable. During the joint venture's project phase he already took responsibility for defining and structuring the pan-European rights management system and cross-border licensing. We are delighted that he is now charge of the further development of ICE's rights management system".

Ticketmaster defends the Adele tickets on its secondary sites
Live music giant Live Nation is in an interesting position when it comes to the long-running debate over secondary ticketing - ie the resale of tickets for profit online - which has become a loud debate in the UK once again.

Some promoters in the firm's concerts division, and managers in its management agencies, do seem to be down on the touts. While its ticketing firm Ticketmaster has innovated in the paperless tickets domain, which some artists and promoters have used in a bid to combat reselling on the secondary market.

At the same time, Ticketmaster is also an active player in the secondary ticketing domain, owning both Get Me In! and Seatwave in the UK. It's that latter part of the business that tends to be most vocal when secondary ticketing is being discussed in political circles.

Last weekend, the Sunday Times noted that Ticketmaster had been a primary seller of tickets for upcoming Adele shows. Adele and her team, of course, have been going the extra mile to try to stop people touting tickets to her highly in-demand concerts. In addition to Songkick's efforts to stop pre-sale tickets going to the touts, the Times says that buyer names will be printed on tickets and fans have been told ID will be required at the venue.

Basically, the aim is seemingly to stop anyone with a touted ticket gaining access, in a bid to stop people buying tickets from online touts in the first place. But then over on Ticketmaster's Get Me In! site tickets for Adele shows are on sale at over ten times face value. Even though, in its guise as a primary seller of Adele tickets, Ticketmaster knows the lengths the singer is going to in a bid to stop those with touted tickets from getting in.

Asked about this, Ticketmaster conceded to the Times that there was a "small risk" that customers buying Adele tickets via Get Me In! might not gain entry on the night. But it said that fact was stated on its resale site, and those with touted tickets would get a refund if entry was refused. The newspaper added that Ticketmaster said it thought the terms and conditions on Adele's tickets were "unfair and unenforceable". Which is potentially a contentious viewpoint.

Approached by Pollstar for further comment, another Ticketmaster spokesperson defended secondary ticketing, arguing that tickets reselling at ten times face value was just down to the free market. "The word marketplace is very important here", they said. "As our resale sites act as a platform for individuals to list their unwanted tickets at a price that they choose, these tickets can then be purchased by someone who is happy with that price".

Acknowledging that Adele had teamed up with Twickets so that fans can resell unwanted tickets at face value, the Ticketmaster rep added: "Putting a cap on resale mark-up on the face value of a ticket is unworkable; the internet has no borders, and if you cap resale, the most sought-after tickets will be made available 'underground' or offshore. Consumers want the right to be able to sell tickets at a market price and the right to pay over the face value of a ticket if they really want to attend a sold out events".

Ticketmaster's statements are pretty much in line with the arguments it and other secondary ticketing site operators put forward whenever there is a call for tighter regulation of the online resale market. Those calls are definitely going to continue in the UK this year, and it remains to be seen if those arguments stand.

Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see how strictly Team Adele force the anti-tout rules once her tour gets underway, and whether there really will be disappointed fans at the door who, while possibly able to get their £1000 back, will still miss out on the show.

Spotify launches annotated lyrics feature with Genius
Spotify has launched another new feature that isn't one of the new features it promised last May (whatever happened to that list?), this one a hook up with lyric annotation site Genius. A series of special playlists will offer "lyrical excerpts, fun facts, annotations, and stories straight from the artists and from the Genius community".

You can join me in guessing what that might be like in practice, because it only works on iOS and the app on my phone hasn't updated yet. But you can listen to the playlists without the new feature, like you would any other, and maybe that's just as much fun.

The main one is the compilation 'Behind The Lyrics (Hip Hop)'. But you can (/will be able to) get a behind the scenes/lyrical look at the work of specific artists too. Right now there are special playlists set up for Pusha T, Tinashe and (because no new Spotify feature can launch without him) Diplo.

"I've partnered with Genius and Spotify to take you 'Behind The Lyrics' of my greatest songs because every word that I write means something to me. Together we've found a way to bring my fans a deeper listening experience and raise the bar for songwriters", says Pusha T, hinting at what the experience might be like.

"Spotify and Genius are creating a really cool connection between me and my fans on another level than I normally can connect with them", enthuses Tinashe. "Not only are they able to hear the music and see the lyrics, but they are also able to understand where I was coming from when I wrote them and kind of get inside my head, which is really cool".

And Diplo: "Being a producer and writer, I really love to see how some songs resonate with fans from the feeling/meaning or just sound of the records. I have always been a person that dissects music and studies it. I was a sample spotter and I learned how to make music by listening to it. Genius and Spotify are working together to break down music to the bare bones and get deeper into its true core".

In case you wondered, you can still pop up the boring old unannotated lyrics on your Spotify screen as well, if you want, with those still provided by Musixmatch.

FAC adds Imogen Heap and Katie Melua to board of directors, launches BEAT for emerging talent
The Featured Artists Coalition has announced this morning that it is adding Imogen Heap and Katie Melua to its board of directors. They join the likes of Sandie Shaw, Ed O'Brien, Nick Mason, Annie Lennox, Fran Healy and Kate Nash on the artist-only board.

Heap said in a statement: "It's fantastic to be invited in to help shape the bright future of our music industry with the FAC gang and hopefully add to their great work! It's the first time in a long time I've been positive about the future of our industry and I completely and whole heartedly believe a revolution is upon us".

Melua added: "It's great to be joining the FAC board, the music industry has long been needing an organisation like this. In my introduction to the FAC, I can see that there is so much experienced knowledge and care in this community, which is there to be shared. If a young artist doesn't know where to find an impartial support system, the FAC can provide the advice and education that can greatly benefit them and the long term creative work also".

As well as new additions to the main board today, the FAC has also announced the launch of a new Breakthrough And Emerging Artists Together board (or BEAT for short. BEAT! Do you see what they did?). The group will represent the interests of featured artists still on the rise in their careers, with founder members including Everything Everything's Jeremy Pritchard, Bella Figura's Justin Gartry, Rotimo Soul, Tomer Danan of Treetop Flyers, Roxanne de Bastion, Niall James Holohan (aka Nibbinz) and Jack Gourlay from The Night VI.

On this particular development, that there mentioned Jeremy Pritchard commented: "In such a transitional and fast-moving period for music, every sector of the industry wants to voice their concerns. Despite being the lifeblood and raisin d'être of the business, the artist's interests are too often lost in the noise, and the voice of emerging artists specifically is the most overlooked. What I hope to do by joining the BEAT board is ensure that artists who are only just breaking through are both fairly represented in the ongoing debate, and are fully equipped for what lies ahead".

Meanwhile, pulling all of this together into a satisfying conclusion, FAC CEO Paul Pacifico said: "The FAC is excited to welcome both Imogen and Katie onto our board. Their support, knowledge and energy further strengthen our organisation at this critical time of change for artists in the music industry. Our 5000 strong membership, represented by the main board and now also the new BEAT board, clearly demonstrate the need and desire for artists to stand up and be counted in the ongoing evolution to a better and more transparent music industry for the 21st century, with the artist-fan relationship at its heart".

  Approved: Sofi Tukker
Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern - or Sofi Tukker to give them their amalgamated and mangled stage name - have been working together since 2014 under the guidance of The Knocks, who provided them with studio space in which to develop their sound.

They are heavily influenced by the Brazilian styles of bossa nova and forró, and that sound can be heard on their upcoming debut EP, 'Soft Animals'. Latest single 'Matadora' is officially released on 15 Jan, and like its predecessor 'Drinkee', interprets a poem by Brazilian poet Chacal into a beat-heavy dance track.

The duo head out on a North American tour supporting The Knocks tomorrow. But for all of us not in easy grasp of those dates, here's 'Matadora' on SoundCloud.

Kendrick Lamar meets with Barack Obama
Having penned Barack Obama's favourite track of 2015, Kendrick Lamar popped down to the old White House the other day to chat with the old Prez about the National Mentoring Partnership and the benefits of young people having mentors, as Lamar did.

"As a kid, having a mentor was vital to me", says Lamar in a video published following the meeting. "Always being there when it counted, [my mentor] allowed me to make some of the most important decisions while growing up. I sat down with President Barack Obama and shared the same views - topics concerning the inner cities, the problem, the solutions and furthermore, embracing the youth - both being aware that mentoring saves lives".

Watch the video here.

Mogwai announce new album
Mogwai have announced that they will release a new album, titled 'Atomic', on 1 Apr through their own Rock Action label. The record features reworked versions of music from their score for atomic bomb documentary 'Atomic: Living In Dread And Promise'.

Says the band's Stuart Braithwaite: "The 'Atomic' soundtrack is one of the most intense and fulfilling projects we've taken on as a band. Ever since we went to Hiroshima to play and visited the peace park this has been a subject very close to us. The end results, both the film score and the record, are pieces I'm extremely proud of".

You can listen to the first track released from the album, 'U-235', now.

David Bowie, Lady Gaga, Vevo, more

Other notable announcements and developments today...

• Lady Gaga has switched her agency allegiances, with CAA now repping the singer instead of WME, according to The Hollywood Reporter. CAA will rep Gaga in "all areas", which presumably means acting gigs as well as music shows. Cos she's an award winning acting type now, let's not forget. Did you forget? Well, don't.

• Another former Elastic Artists agent has popped up at a rival firm following that agency's recent slip into administration. Paul McQueen, previously based in Glasgow, is relocating to London to join Primary Talent.

• Virgin Media is bringing music video platform Vevo to its customer's TiVo boxes and, frankly, there is nothing you can do to stop that from happening. Sorry. It's officially out of your control. But guess how Vevo EVP of Business Development Alex Kisch feels about the deal. Go on, GUESS.

• Seven David Bowie albums are currently headed for the UK top 40 this week, including 'Blackstar', which remains on course for number one. Meanwhile, three tracks are looking set to enter the main singles chart, according to the Official Charts Company.

• Bowie also heading for his first US number one with 'Blackstar'.

• The BRIT Awards ceremony next month will include some sort of David Bowie tribute, as you'd probably expect.

• Now Magazine reckons that Adele's planning to launch a fashion line aimed at "busy mums". Just hope the mums aren't too busy to notice.

• Enter Shikari have a new single out called 'Redshift'. Have a listen.

• Danny L Harle has released the video for 'Broken Flowers'.

Bono dares you to ride a bike with him for charity
Bono is auctioning off the opportunity to ride a tandem bike around Central Park with him to raise money for AIDS charity (RED). And, yes, he is aware that you'd have to be quite a brave person to do that.

As you'll probably remember, the U2 frontman fell off his non-tandem bicycle in the New York park back in 2014, resulting in a number of injuries, some surgery, and the threat that he might never play guitar again.

"Life knocks us down, we get back up", he explains in a video about the auction, although that would seem to cover him rather than you. No, for you there's just the chance to be a true thrill seeker. "Forget about jumping out of planes, scaling Mount Everest. Join me for a bike ride and really live on the edge".

I've transcribed that as "the edge" rather than "The Edge", but who knows what could be in store for the top bidder?

"We'll ride". Woo! "We'll laugh". Hooray! "We'll snap a few selfies". Sure thing! "We'll talk about our favourite albums". Love to, B-man! "Geo-politics". Maybe let's keep it light. "And I'll tell you what it feels like to suffer a facial fracture involving the orbit of your eye". Oh, what? "And having your elbow redone in titanium". Come on now. "And enduring the physical torture of physical therapy with a Satanic German physio". Umm. "Good times". OK.

"If we all survive... we'll go for an ice cream", he promises, clawing things back. I love ice cream.

Anyway, watch a video and learn more here.
