IAO calls on European Commission to keep artists at the heart of its copyright review
Over 50 artists from across Europe have signed a letter calling on the European Commission to ensure that the ongoing review of copyright law in the European Union keeps artists very much in mind.

Noting that the Commission itself has "put fair remuneration on the agenda for the copyright review", the letter - organised by the International Artist Organisation, which brings together various artist groups like the UK's Featured Artist Coalition - says "we are writing to ask your help in ensuring that this remains at the very heart of that review".

As previously reported, the record industry and music publishers have put safe harbours at the top of their priority list for the European copyright review, in a bid stop the likes of YouTube exploiting legal protections originally designed for internet service providers and server hosting companies so to run 'opt-out' rather than 'opt-in' streaming services.

Artists don't necessarily disagree with the labels and publishers on the safe harbours issue, though they have other concerns that they would also like addressed, such as the way digital revenue is shared between stakeholders in the music community, the lack of transparency in digital deals, and the specifics around how a 'stream' is defined by copyright law, which can have an impact on how artists are paid.

That latter point - which centres on clarifying how the 'communication' and 'making available' controls of copyright operate - is very much on the EC's official copyright agenda; indeed more so than safe harbours.

The IAO letter, signed by the likes of Annie Lennox, Will Young, Sandie Shaw and Robbie Williams in the UK, as well as Axel Bauer in France, Luz Casal in Spain and Julia Neigel in Germany, begins: "Artists love technology. We are now, as always, at the cutting edge, pushing the boundaries. We wholeheartedly support the transition to a future-facing digital single market and the opportunity to reboot out ecosystem to be stronger and more vibrant".

But, it adds, "the market as it stands only works for a handful of global corporations without proportionate value flowing through the system to the sea of creators who are, in fact, small business entrepreneurs. It is this work and these people, the foundation of an important sector of the economy, that now needs your attention".

It continues: "We are not asking for market intervention. All we want is that the normal principles of a functioning market - transparency, duty of care, share of value and remuneration that is equitable - be applied to music. If adopted, this would enable all parts of the music sector to contract on fair terms and to benefit together from the success ahead".

A much more organised than before artist-led movement does now seem to be getting more traction in European political circles than during past copyright reviews. Though with the labels and publishers shouting ever louder about safe harbours, the artists need to maintain that momentum to keep other issues on the agenda as well. Hence letters like this one.

SFX wants lawsuit against founder put on hold while bankruptcy goes through motions
The bankrupt bass-breaks-n-beats-bastion SFX last week asked the US bankruptcy court to extend the 'automatic stay provision' of the company's bankruptcy protection to its founder and CEO Robert FX Sillerman and several other directors.

Bankruptcy rules Stateside mean that bankrupt companies cannot be sued while in the process of formally trying to rescue their businesses, and existing litigation is usually put on hold too. That protection only automatically applies to the bankrupt company itself, not executives who work there.

However, says SFX, a previously reported shareholder lawsuit targeting Sillerman himself over allegations that the CEO made "materially false and misleading statements" while attempting to take his company back into private ownership a year ago, is proving to be a right old distraction from the important work of restructuring the company "to achieve all that SFX can and will be".

To that end, Sillerman wants that lawsuit put on hold while SFX is going through the bankruptcy motions. As previously reported, the long-flagging EDM festival promoter and Beatport owner finally applied for bankruptcy protection at the start of this month, with its founder saying the process, while not ideal, would enable his firm "to achieve all that SFX can and will be".

Minogue and Jenner go head to head for rights to the Kylie name
Kylie Minogue has opposed a bid by Kylie Jenner to trademark the name 'Kylie' for US advertising purposes.

According to the World Intellectual Property Review, Jenner filed her trademark application in the US last year, with Minogue's Australia-based business KDB filing an opposition last week. The singer, who already owns 'Kylie' trademarks for entertainment services and music recordings, says that the existence of two rival Kylie marks would cause confusion and dilute her brand.

I'm confused already, though mainly because I'm still not entirely sure who Kylie Jenner is. Luckily, Minogue is on hand to tell me, and anyone else who's unsure, that the other Kylie is a "secondary reality television personality" who has received criticism from disability rights groups and African-American communities. So you can see why the singer's not keen to be confused with celebrity-by-association Jenner.

Whether or not Minogue will come out of this dispute triumphant remains to be seen. However, this is probably just a warm up, as WIPR reports that Jenner also has a newer application pending for the Kylie name in connection with entertainment services.

--------------------------------------------------

Record industry wins default judgment against MP3Skull
The Recording Industry Association Of America last week secured its default judgement against piracy website MP3Skull, with the court awarding it $22 million in damages and the rights to seize the copyright infringing service's domains.

As previously reported, the RIAA pushed for summary judgement in its favour last year, after the operators of MP3Skull failed to respond to its litigation. The trade group listed 148 specific tracks that had been infringed via the piracy set-up and requested the full statutory damages per infringement, which is $150,000. Hence the $22,200,000 total damages figure.

Though, of course, not knowing who runs the piracy service makes getting any of those damages tricky. And even if you do track anyone down, chances are they don't have any money worth chasing.

But, for the RIAA, the priority will be trying to force MP3Skull offline, making the domain seizure element of the judgement arguably more important. Though, obviously the ruling is only technically enforceable within the US, and piracy sites like MP3Skull are adept at jumping from domain registrar to domain registrar, keeping the formalities outside the States.

So it remains to be seen whether the court win has any real impact, though, as previously noted, while MP3Skull has been a significant piracy operation in recent years, its user base does seem to be waning because of various anti-piracy efforts against the site.

UK government makes final amendments to new collective licensing regulations
The UK's Intellectual Property Office last week published a report that summarised the feedback it received on plans to implement new European collective licensing regulations into British law.

The EU directive on collective licensing was passed in 2014 and included various new regulations for collecting societies, like music industry bodies PPL and PRS, the aim being to provide better protection and provision for creators, rights owners and licensees. Member states must implement the new rules into their own copyright laws by 10 Apr.

Last year, the IPO announced plans to cut and paste much of the EU directive directly into UK law, but at the same to "take advantage of flexibilities in the directive to give our CMOs more choice about how they operate". One of those trendy consultations on the IPO's plans then took place.

Last week a summary of the feedback given during that consultation was published, alongside confirmation that some amendments were now being made to the final regulations being put forward by the IPO. These include amends on staff training, alternative dispute resolution and compliance notices. Feedback will also inform guidance notes that will accompany the new regs.

Although the new regulations should overcome some of the issues creators, rights owners and licensees have had with collective licensing in the past, all over Europe, as soon as the EC published it's directive two years ago many key societies put out statements to the effect "we're already doing all that", so it will be interesting to see whether any actual changes of practice result.

You can download the IPO's report here.

Tennent's confident T In The Park will overcome logistical problems with new site
The sponsorship chief at drinks company Tennent's has given his backing to T In The Park after last year's move to a new site caused significant logistical problems.

As previously reported, a recent report from Perth & Kinross Council outlined a number of issues that occurred when the festival took place for the first time at the Strathallan estate. The report identified problems like traffic congestion, concerns over crowd safety and disruption to residents. It added that "until [promoter] DF can demonstrate their capability to effectively manage this event in the future", the festival would be treated differently, and put under more scrutiny as it applied for a licence for its 2016 edition.

DF had already announced its own review of the issues that occurred in 2015, as well as new appointments - both employees and suppliers - which it hoped would overcome the problems. Meanwhile last week the promoter announced that Calvin Harris and Red Hot Chili Peppers would headline the 2016 edition of T In The Park, alongside already announced The Stone Roses.

Speaking about last year's issues, George Kyle at Tennent's, which has sponsored the festival ever since its launch over two decades ago, told the Daily Record: "There were very difficult circumstances and a short timescale in terms of planning permission. There is an acknowledgement of teething issues and the guys put their hands up and addressed those immediately, working really hard with all agencies and parties".

Referencing DF boss Geoff Ellis, he went on: "Geoff and his team have built on the trust and the audience appreciate that and know that the issues will be addressed this year".

On his brand's continued involvement in the annual music event so many years after its launch, he went on: "T In The Park never loses its magic. [It's] now on its third site and is three or four times the original size. The audiences love the event and the reaction the artists get creates the unique atmosphere of the event".

Tennant's recently won the CMU-supported best music sponsorship prize at the European Sponsorship Association Excellence Awards, and ahead of that Kyle spoke about his company's long-term alliance with T In The Park, and the constant bid to keep the alliance fresh. Read the interview here.

Brooklyn Magazine reports on the aftermath of Heathcliff Berru's downfall, and the power of social media
Disgraced former music publicist Heathcliff Berru has spoken to Brooklyn Magazine about the accusations of sexual assault that led to the collapse of his company, US-based Life Or Death PR, earlier this year. The interview was part of a larger article about how social media was used to expose Berru, and the wider problem of misogyny in the music industry.

As previously reported, in January Dirty Projectors' Amber Coffman tweeted about a "very popular music publicist" who had "RUBBED my ass and BIT my hair at a bar a couple years ago". Hours later, she named Berru as the man in her story, which prompted many others to come forward with reports of the PR man's past actions.

Berru subsequently resigned as CEO of his company, while its staff all quit and formed a new PR firm with no ties to their former employer.

In the article, writer Caitlin White says she's now aware of 43 woman who have stories about Berru, ranging from inappropriate contact to sexual assault. Several people interviewed for the piece said that the stories were common knowledge in the industry, and dated back as far as a decade. What changed was their being made available on social media.

"I'm trying to think of individual cases where something like this has happened, but I honestly can't recall anything like this", said music journalist Ann Powers. "I think that's because of social media. It happens so fast, and it's so public. It didn't have to happen in a court of law, and it hasn't happened in a court of law, so that is a factor. It definitely happened fast without the kind of backup you get when something has to be reported or prosecuted in a more conventional way. But at the same time, it's so hard to prosecute these kinds of crimes. Is it even defined in court as a crime? There's so much grey in it legally. I think it's almost impossible to call out men definitively".

"I think women speaking up about inappropriate men and having it spread sends a strong message to men that they can be held accountable", added Biz 3's Kathryn Frazier, who employed Berru early in his career, but fired him over his drug and alcohol misuse. "Women ending the silence of harassment-related shame is important, but I also felt uneasy at times watching how some ushered this entire accusation-to-trial-to-judgement of Heathcliff Berru over the course of a couple of days, and all via Twitter and Facebook".

Speaking from a rehab facility, where he is being treated for drug, alcohol and sex addition, Berru commended the women who had come forward and named him: "I think it's very brave and bold when people stand up," he said. "I hope this motivates women and anyone to stand up, and put one foot forward in a situation that makes them feel uncomfortable".

And to target in general "sexism in music or entertainment, or in industries where people drink, use drugs and do other things that they'll use to excuse themselves the next day when they clean up. I want to be a good example for people that have addiction issues. The reason I'm even speaking today is to express sincere apology and to acknowledge that I was a really shitty person and upset a lot of women. Men everywhere are shaken as a result of these stories, and you know what? It's time that people own up".

However, added Powers: "Men abusing their power to gain sexual access to women in the music industry is extremely deeply rooted. In my opinion, it's rooted in thousands of years of social structure [and] this has been going on for the entire history of popular music".

  Approved: NY*AK
The Ninja Tune offshoot that specialises in twelve-inch releases, Technicolour, hits us hard with a smasher from Newcastle-based hardware junkie NY*AK, aka Andrew Scott. But why NY*AK? Apparently the man behind the moniker banged his computer keyboard in frustration one day and hey presto, NY*AK was born.

It's a good package, diverse and groovesome, and a little left off centre. With some shades of Atjazz, Kenny Larkin and The Modern Deep Left Quartet in there somewhere, the record covers many bases, with Scott citing Herbie Hancock, Theo Parrish, Kenny Dope and Louie Vega as influences.

The highlight is 'Shadow', with its addictive deep beats par excellence, sitting behind some nice breathy vocals from Misumami. But it's title track 'Dollar' - which uses some tough beats to create something slightly brooding yet a little bit funky - which you can check out for yourself here.

Eagles Of Death Metal cancel European tour dates
Eagles Of Death Metal have cancelled their remaining European tour dates after frontman Jesse Hughes tore a tendon in his finger. The band will recommence their world tour in South America next week.

In a statement on Friday, the band said: "Eagles Of Death Metal has regrettably been forced to cancel the remainder of their European tour due to founder Jesse Hughes tearing a tendon in his finger. Hughes has tried to play through the injury during the current tour, but doctors have advised that the only way to properly heal it is to stop playing now, or risk further injury and having to cancel several weeks worth of shows".

Hughes commented: "I'm devastated that we cannot continue what has been a life-changing return to Europe, but I need to get repaired so we can continue to play rock music around this beautiful world, including coming back to Europe even stronger in the summer".

The European shows, of course, came three months after terrorists stormed an Eagles Of Death Metal show in Paris last November, killing 90 people. The band returned to Paris for a new headline show earlier this month, having previously joined U2 on stage in French capital just three weeks after the attack.

Their next scheduled show is now at the Armando Music Hall in Bogota, Colombia on 9 Mar.

MPA, Three Six Zero, Tony Blackburn, more

Other notable announcements and developments today...

• Applications for the Music Publishers Association's Richard Toeman Scholarship Scheme are open right now, offering training and other opportunities for those at the start of their careers in publishing the tunes. Click ye here for all the intell, as you cool kids say.

• Management firm Three Six Zero has recruited Brian Young as part of its bid to expand beyond music. Young's experience is in movies, and he joins from his own agency ArtForm, whose clients are expected to move with him. Commenting, Young said something about curves and branding.

• Bauer Media has confirmed that, while DJ Tony Blackburn is currently on holiday from his show on its City 2 Network, he'll be back on air soon. As previously noted, Blackburn will also continue to DJ on kmfm, despite him losing his BBC gigs last week. The presenter spoke about his fallout with the BBC this weekend in an exclusive interview with, erm, the BBC.

• OfCom has re-advertised the west central Scotland FM licence most recently used by Xfm Scotland. As previously reported, Global Radio gave up the frequency because the media regulator wouldn't let it just pump the London-version of Radio X out on the channel. Deadline for bids is 26 May.

• Sam Smith took the Oscar for Best Original Song last night for his lacklustre Bond theme 'Writing's On The Wall'. So, big up your lacklustre Bond themes. The Amy Winehouse film also won Best Documentary.

Joe & Jake to represent the UK at Eurovision
So, imaginatively-named duo Joe & Jake are going forward to represent the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest this May. I know, I thought it would be Bianca Claxton too, but apparently she didn't have enough oh, oh, ohs in her song.

The pair sang their song last on BBC Four's 'Eurovision: You Decide' show on Friday night, where acts performed in the broadcaster's order of preference, and then we all pretended that there had been a real attempt to provide viewers - brought back into the UK's Eurovision song selection process again this year - with some sort of choice. The first four acts barely even made it through their songs on the night. And the first one had a banjo, for fuck's sake.

Joe Woolford and Jake Shakeshaft, who met when they entered 'The Voice' as solo artists last year, were performing 'You're Not Alone', written by Schwartz, Justin J Benson and S Kanes.

"I can't even talk", lied Joe (or Jake, I'm not sure which it was, to be honest) after the winning song was announced. "It feels amazing. We just want to say this crowd is absolutely incredible. For everyone back home that has voted thank you so much. We are so proud we are going to represent the UK. Thank you. It's going to be incredible. I hope we make you all proud. We've never been to Stockholm but there's a first time for everything. We're going to start working on the song so we can win".

I think he means working on their performance of the song, rather than re-writing it. But maybe they could throw in a few more ohs, as that seems to be what people like.

Anyway, here's our 'winning' song.
