DMT 111 – Streaming Windows, Digital Groceries and Fairness

Digital Music Trends Audio show

Summary: This week on Digital Music Trends I'm joined by Darren Hemmings (@mr_trick) and Sam Taylor (@saaaaaam). We talk about: - AC/DC landing on iTunes (finally) and the parallels to hold-outs now happening in the streaming world including Rihanna's latest album release -  digital groceries, as UK supermarket giant Tesco plans to integrate recently acquired music streaming service We7 into its video distribution brand Blinkbox, discussing the role large-scale retailers can play in this area and whether the fact that they don't actually need to make a profit from these services could damage stand-alone music and video distribution companies. - the latest on the Internet Radio Fairness act including some of the numbers unveiled by songwriters in regards to royalties received by Pandora - finally we do a quick overview of the music industry events happening in the first part of 2013 including Eurosonic, Midem, SFmusictech, SXSW and the Great Escape.
