CMU TRENDS: We all know the digital pie debate, but there is another discussion to be had about the way streaming income is shared out, focused less on how the stakeholders in any one track divvy up the money, and more on how streaming monies are shared across the music industry. Start-up SupaPass brings this debate to the fore. Find out why in this free-to-access sample CMU Trends article. [READ MORE]

European Commission approves Sony Corp's Sony/ATV buy out
The European Commission has given the green light to Sony Corp's acquisition of the 50% of music publishing business Sony/ATV currently owned by the Michael Jackson Estate.

As previously reported, some of Sony's smaller rivals in music publishing, as well as pan-European indie label trade group IMPALA, raised objections to the acquisition, arguing it gave Sony Corp too much dominance in the music rights sector, Sony/ATV being the world's biggest music publishing business, while Sony Music Entertainment is the world's second biggest record company. Meanwhile's Sony's music interests in home country Japan operate as a third autonomous business.

The EC – more so than competition regulators elsewhere in the world – has objected to consolidation in the music rights sector in the past, usually forcing big players which are merging to offload certain catalogues or other assets in order to get clearance for their deals. The Commission did just that when Citigroup sold off EMI back in 2012, though the remedies demanded by the regulator were much more severe for Universal's acquisition of the EMI record company than the Sony/ATV-led purchase of EMI Music Publishing.

Nevertheless, IMPALA felt that comments made by EC regulators during the EMI sale should impact on Sony Corp's new plan to take full ownership of Sony/ATV. The group's Helen Smith told Bloomberg earlier this year: "It's difficult to imagine how the Sony/ATV deal could get any kind of green light from the European Commission. Just three years ago the EC effectively set a limit when it already said Sony was too big and had to divest assets".

But a green light is what the Commission has now given the deal, without demanding a more thorough investigation into the acquisition, or any remedies from the major. According to Reuters, the Commission said in a statement: "The transaction will not materially increase Sony's market power vis-a-vis digital music providers compared to the situation prior to the merger".

It is by combining Sony's interests in recorded music and published songs that the firm's market dominance is particularly significant. To date the Sony Music record company and Sony/ATV publishing business have been run separately from each other, partly because the latter was a joint venture.

Of course, it's common for music rights companies to keep their labels and publishing interests in standalone divisions, though with both Universal and Warner they join up at the top, whereas Sony's recording and publishing businesses only come under common oversight higher up the Sony Entertainment hierarchy.

With Sony Corp taking complete ownership of Sony/ATV, the two sides of Sony's global music operations could now become more closely allied, even though there remain other shareholders in EMI Music Publishing, which is basically a subsidiary of Sony/ATV. Which might be one reason to argue against the acquisition, in that, with some joined up thinking, Sony could better exploit its market dominance in the wider music rights sector.

Though it's possible that EC regulators reckoned that, because on the songs side - in Continental Europe at least - the collecting societies rather than the publishers lead in so many licensing scenarios, more joined up management at Sony wouldn't really make much difference from a licensee's perspective.

The acquisition still needs approval in the US, but it's very unlikely that American regulators would block a deal that got approval from the European Union.

Kesha drops Californian lawsuit against Dr Luke
Kesha's long-running legal battle with producer Dr Luke is now focused on just one American state, with the singer voluntarily dismissing litigation in California.

As previously reported, Kesha Sebert accuses her long-time musical collaborator Lukasz Gottwald of plying her with drugs and alcohol and raping her as a teenager. He denies all of those allegations, and has sued both the singer and her mother for defamation, saying that the accusations were invented in a bid to force his hand in a contractual dispute.

Most attention to date has focused on the legal action being pursued in New York, though there was also litigation in Tennessee and California. The latter had been put on hold, pending hearings in New York, but as recently as May legal reps for Kesha indicated plans to request that side of the dispute be reactivated.

In New York, in the main Gottwald has prevailed in court, even though Kesha has generally won the PR battle. But the core allegations made by the singer have never actually been assessed in a courtroom, making the possibility of a reactivation of the Californian action interesting. But, it seems, the singer wants to focus on appealing past judgements in the New York courts, while also trying to get her music career back on track.

Attempts to get out of her deal with Sony Music, which owns Gottwald's label, were unsuccessful in court, though both record company and producer have insisted that Kesha is welcome to work with another Sony imprint and production team on any new material. And, despite initially resisting that proposal, it seems that Kesha is now willing to work with people elsewhere in the Sony empire.

Her current lawyer Daniel M Petrocelli said yesterday: "Kesha has dismissed her California action without prejudice while she pursues her appeal and other legal claims in the New York courts. Kesha is focused on getting back to work and has delivered 28 new songs to the record label. We have conveyed to Sony Music and the label Kesha's strong desire to release her next album and single as soon as possible".

By dismissing the Californian case "without prejudice", Kesha could in theory restart legal proceedings there in the future, but that seems unlikely. Meanwhile, Gottwald's legal rep, Christine Lepera, said in a statement yesterday: "If Kesha is voluntarily dismissing her claims in the California case, it is because she has no chance of winning them".

The lawyer went on: "Earlier this year, she lost her meritless counterclaims against Dr Luke in the New York action. Recently, the California court invited Dr Luke and the other defendants to move to dismiss Kesha's claims in that action. Kesha never should have brought her false and meritless claims against Dr Luke in any court. Dr Luke's defamation and other claims against Kesha are still proceeding".

Atlantic attempting to force Reddit to reveal identity of Twenty One Pilots leaker
Warner division Atlantic Records is attempting to push Reddit into releasing the IP address of a user who leaked new Twenty One Pilots single 'Heathens' before its official release date. The company apparently suspects a member of staff of being involved in the leak.

The single, taken from the soundtrack of 'Suicide Squad', was released early in June, after it was made available illegally. The record company had originally planned to release the track on 24 Jun, coinciding with the launch of pre-orders for 'Suicide Squad: The Album', which is due out this Friday.

"Prior to 15 Jun 2016 [when the track leaked], Atlantic had provided access to a digital copy of 'Heathens' only to an extremely limited number of individuals", the company says in a recent legal filing. "These individuals included members of Twenty One Pilots, their manager, Atlantic and Fueled By Ramen executives, and members of Atlantic's radio field staff. In each such case, the individual was barred from distributing the recording until the scheduled release date of 24 Jun 2016".

After attempts to slow the unofficial distribution of the song online through takedowns failed - the legal letter goes on - the label took the decision to release the song early on 16 Jun. This meant that prominent placing on services such as iTunes and Spotify, which had been arranged for the official release date, was lost. This, combined with having to ditch the scheduled marketing plan, arguably meant that the single did not perform as well as had been expected.

The music firm is now trying to track down the source of the leak, but says it is "unable to ascertain that information from any source other than Reddit".

Confirming its suspicions, the letter goes on: "If the poster is an Atlantic employee, he or she was a contractual and/or fiduciary duty to Atlantic not to distribute the recording to the public without Atlantic's authorisation. By distributing the recording as described above, he or she would have breached his or her contract and/or fiduciary duties to Atlantic".

"If the poster is not an Atlantic employee", it continues, "then he or she likely obtained the
recording from an Atlantic employee, who would have breached his or her contract and/or
fiduciary duties to Atlantic by providing the poster access to the recording".

UMTV becomes UMOD because, you know, playlisting and all that nonsense
Universal Music's always slightly confusingly named compilations division UMTV is rebranding as Universal Music On Demand, or UMOD to its closest friends. Which is still slightly confusing. The new name presumably acknowledges the fact that the unit now leads on the major's playlisting activities on the streaming platforms in the UK. Though isn't pretty much all music 'on demand' these days, playlisted or not.

Anyway, UMOD will coordinate Universal Music UK's "dynamic playlist strategy" and control the major's own playlist brands, while still pushing out compilation albums to the not insignificant number of consumers who still surprisingly buy such things.

The revamp follows the appointment of former Sony exec Simon Barnabas to run the division back in April, and he says of the all new UMOD: "Universal Music On Demand is a seismic leap for the playlisting and compilation side of Universal Music UK's business. It is a strategic response to market changes and the demands of music fans which will allow us to capitalise on the exciting and emerging opportunities within this new age of streaming".

UMOD boasts that it now has a team of "talented curators, analysts and innovative marketers" in place to capitalise on all these "exciting and emerging opportunities". I wonder if that means the marketers are both talented and innovative, or just innovative? And if they are both, why aren't the curators and analysts innovative? "The formation of UMOD", Barnabas concludes, ignoring of adjectival enquires, "reflects the growing importance of playlists both culturally and commercially".

Guvera creditors accept deal on the two companies in administration
Creditors of the two subsidiaries of struggling streaming service Guvera which were put into administration last month have accepted a so called 'deed of company arrangement' which will stop the companies from actually being wound up.

One of the administrators overseeing the administration of Guvera Australia and Guv Services said in a statement: "The creditors accepted a deed of company arrangement for each company. These DOCAs will provide greater certainty of a return to priority creditors, such as employees, than liquidation of the companies would have done".

The terms of those arrangements – and quite what payments creditors will see – are not clear. The two companies owed over AUS$12.5 million when they went into administration, with the tax man, collecting society APRA/AMCOS and marketing and PR companies among the creditors. As previously reported, former staff of the digital music company were also affected.

Guvera has bailed on several markets, including home country Australia, since having its planned IPO blocked by the Australian Securities Exchange and having to put the two Aussie companies into administration as a result. The firm insists that it can still succeed as a primarily ad-funded streaming service in certain emerging markets, though many outside the business remain sceptical about all that.

  Approved: Neamo Kid
Having released a handful of tracks under her real name a few years ago, Linnea Sundemo is back under the name Neamo Kid with new single 'Schoolyard'.

The sister of Frida Sundemo, Neamo Kid's sound also fits into the pop category, although she takes a far less upbeat route than her older sibling. 'Schoolyard' is slow in pace, with a dark atmosphere that regularly cracks to allow glimpses of light to shine through.

You can find out more about Neamo Kid, and hear a few snippets of more upcoming music, in this short film.

Amy Winehouse Foundation to open a house for women recovering from drug and alcohol addiction
The Amy Winehouse Foundation will open a house for women recovering from drug and alcohol addiction later this month. Called Amy's Place and situated in East London, it will provide space for sixteen women aged between eighteen and 30.

Dominic Ruffy of the Foundation said that the move was a reaction to a lack of women-only recovery services in the UK. "There are about six women-only rehabs, and beyond that, there's an even greater paucity of women-specific recovery housing beds", he told The Guardian. "There is only one other women-only recovery house in London and it's only a four-bed with a six-month waiting list".

Jane Winehouse, Managing Trustee of the charity and Amy's step-mother, added: "This project will make such a profound difference to so many young women, enabling them to have a safe environment in which to rebuild their lives and put into practice all the learning they have acquired through their treatment journey. Fresh starts are difficult to make, full of challenges, but at Amy's Place, we will give young women the tools and support to help make this a reality".

Amy's Place is due to open on 22 Aug, just under five years since the Amy Winehouse Foundation was launched in memory of the singer who died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011.

Third Man Records launches record player into space
You remember when Felix Baumgartner went up high enough above the Earth that he was technically in space and then did a parachute jump? That was quite impressive, wasn't it? Well Jack White's Third Man Records just did the same thing with a record player. Not quite as impressive though I guess.

No, come on, let's all stop being so bloody cynical. A record was played in what is technically space and that is a great achievement, isn't it? I mean, isn't it? Is it? I don't know. But it has happened, and that's probably worth talking about for a couple of minutes.

Launched into the air attached to a helium balloon to mark the seventh anniversary of the record label, the record player played Carl Sagan's 'A Glorious Dawn' on repeat all the way up. Then eventually the balloon burst and it came falling back to Earth on a parachute. The record was still playing when it landed back on the ground.

It does mean that Jack White is now claiming to be the first person to play a vinyl record in space, even though he wasn't actually up there. It wasn't even him who started it playing down on solid ground, as far as I can see, so I'm not sure what he's banging on about.

Explaining some of the technical problems of achieving this monumental feat, engineer Kevin Carrico explained: "As you rise higher and higher into the thinning atmosphere, temperature and increasing vacuum (lack of air) can cause issues. Vinyl has a rather low melting point (160°F), and without air to keep things cool, you could wind-up with a lump of melted plastic on your hands if a record is exposed to the sun for too long".

He went on: "Without air, things in direct sunlight can get very hot while things in shade can get very cold. This constant expansion and contraction can physically distort a vinyl record rendering it unplayable. So our turntable platter also served as a heat-sink in order to keep the vinyl cool in direct sunlight".

Oh you're impressed now, aren't you? Here's what Jack White had to say about it all: "Our main goal from inception to completion of this project was to inject imagination and inspiration into the daily discourse of music and vinyl lovers".

He went on: "Combining our creative impulses with those of discovery and science is our passion, and even on the scale that we are working with here, it was exhilarating to decide to do something that hasn't been done before and to work towards its completion. And, it brings us great fulfilment to pay tribute to the incredible scientist and dreamer that Carl Sagan was. We hope that in meeting our goal we inspire others to dream big and start their own missions, whatever they may be".

Have you come around to this whole thing now? Have you stopped thinking it was all a waste of time and effort? Well, good. You are now ready to watch this TWO HOUR video of the whole event.

Warpaint announce new album
Warpaint have announced that they will release their third album, 'Heads Up', on 23 Sep. So that's good news.

This time around, the band were a bit more relaxed in their creative process, says the outfit's Stella Mozgawa. "The doors were a little more open in terms of what was accepted and what wasn't, because we were sharing ideas so rapidly between us", she explains. "The roles that each of us individually had - or had established - were a little more malleable".

Jenny Lee Lindberg adds: "I feel really proud of what we made - almost surprised and shocked. When we were making it, I was like, 'I wonder what this is going to sound like? How's this going to come together?' I love the way that it came together so nicely. I feel so proud of it, and like it's an evolution of our band. It sounds like a mature version of Warpaint".

They've also released a new song, conveniently called 'New Song'. Listen here.

Amazon patents headphones that switch off when your name is called
The other day at the office where I was working there was a bit of a kerfuffle as management marched a dodgy looking fella off the premises. Having originally claimed to be "maintenance", he then started shouting "but I'm a member of the public", as if that was the perfect excuse for prowling around a private office building.

So that was all fun. But here's the thing, I missed it all. Why, because my desk faced the wall and the headphones I was using – which I may or may not have nicked off a BA plane – were so damn good at blocking out noise, I was totally oblivious to the entire episode. And I hate missing episodes.

But Amazon might have a solution to that problem. According to C-Net, it has just been granted a patent for headphones that are not only noise-cancelling, but also switch off if certain words are exclaimed near by, such as the headphone wearer's name. They could also stop the music if things like alarms or sirens were heard, making them safer to use out and about. Which is all very clever. Though possibly annoying if, like me, [a] you have a very common name or [b] you work somewhere where sirens go past all the time.

Though if it can recognise people shouting "but I'm a member of the public" so I don't miss out on viewing future office security-based kerfuffles, then I'm in.
