    Last year’s Music Modernization Act created a powerful new structure to collect and distribute digital streaming royalties to songwriters and publishers. But passing the law was only the first step. Now what’s written on paper needs to be implemented and put in motion — a responsibility of the U.S. Copyright Office, under the supervision and oversight of Congress. Perhaps the most important issue on the table, and one that is expected to be a major focus of the Copyright Office oversight hearing of the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, is the official designation of a group to manage the MMA’s new Mechanical Licensing Collective (MLC).

  • UMG Secured a Massive Settlement from NBCUniversal After the 2008 Fire — But Shared Nothing Back With Artists

    As Universal Music Group faces the specter of dozens of lawsuits stemming from its mishandling of the 2008 Universal Studios fire, another buried fact has surfaced.  According to details unearthed by multiple sources, Universal Music Group secured a sizable settlement from NBCUniversal in 2013, based on Universal Studios’ negligence leading up to the 2008 fire.

  • New Zealand to Revise, Not Repeal, Anti-Union Law in Coda to 2010 “Hobbit Crisis”

    Elections have consequences, but it’s not always that simple: New Zealand’s Labour-led government said on June 13 that it has decided to revise — rather than repeal, as previously promised — the country’s so-called “Hobbit law” that effectively bars film workers from unionizing by categorizing them as independent contractors rather than employees.

  • “It’s Part of the Job to Be Unsure”: Ava DuVernay, Ben Stiller and The Hollywood Reporter TV Director Roundtable

    There was a time, not so long ago, when the small screen was considered a step down for a film director. But THR‘s first-ever TV Director Roundtable features a dream list of top helmers, from auteurs (Sharp Objects‘ Jean-Marc Vallée, 56, and Succession‘s Adam McKay, 51) to one star turned director (Escape at Dannemoras Ben Stiller, 53) — plus two of the only women in Hollywood who’ve headed up $100 million studio films: Patty Jenkins, 47 (TNT’s I Am the Night) and Ava DuVernay, 46 (Netflix’s When They See Us). But today, most of the attention is focused on David Nutter, the longtime TV helmer who directed three of the final six episodes of Game of Thrones. That’s because it’s May 10, there are just two episodes of the HBO behemoth left, and Nutter, 59, is one of the only people in the world who knows how it all ends. While McKay can’t resist trying to extract a spoiler or two (“Does the last dragon die?”), Nutter stays mum — but all six helmers do speak frankly about their greatest challenges, their disagreements with actors and their biggest fights to make their dreams come to life onscreen.

The notion of internet exceptionalism is quickly fading, and, along with it, the myth in which Silicon Valley exists to “make the world a better place.” The reality is quite different: The world’s most powerful internet companies, Google and Facebook, have become highly concentrated and frequently act against the public’s interests.

This time ‘en banc’, meaning a bigger team of judges will consider the arguments of both sides. En banc hearings are unusual and are generally only employed in important cases, so if nothing else, at least this long-running song-theft dispute can now officially be classified as “important”.

The RMLC has filed a new lawsuit in Los Angeles alleging GMR of using “flagrant and shameless” moves that violate antitrust laws to squeeze millions from radio. L.A. is where GMR has filed an antitrust lawsuit of its own. The claim, filed in 2016, contends the RMLC is essentially an “illegal cartel.”

Up against a midnight deadline, the agents hoped the guild would counter their recent offer. But Young, the WGA’s chief negotiator and a career labor organizer with roots in the garment worker and Teamsters unions, deployed a decidedly unusual tactic: He warned the agents to brush up on their understanding of RICO laws.

  • Today’s Biggest Antitrust Targets: Facebook, Google and Music Licensing (Yes, Really)

    What is the biggest antitrust conundrum for the U.S. Department of Justice at the moment?

    It’s not Facebook. Evidently, in a bit of regulatory horse-trading, the Justice Department just agreed to confer jurisdiction to the Federal Trade Commission to investigate Mark Zuckberg’s social media juggernaut. In exchange, the Justice Department is now taking the lead in a probe of Google over its influence in the online advertising industry. But Google might not represent such a tough call to prosecute, either. Not when the might of big tech commands bipartisan concern. Maybe instead, as President Donald Trump takes a tour of London, the toughest choice for William Barr’s DOJ is what to do about the British invasion. That’s right, we’re talking about The Beatles a half century after the breakup of John Lennon and Paul McCartney. More specifically, the DOJ has a decision on its hands with respect to the future of music licensing.

    iTunes will remain unchanged on Windows platforms, and downloads will still be available in a sidebar on the Apple Music app for Macs.

    The announcements were made at the WWDC conference, where the tech giant outlines its software plans for the months ahead.
