And then there were three .......


Universal takes the label. Sony ATV takes the publishing company.

Instead of halting the uncertainty, these acquisitions raise more questions than they answer:

- Is this inevitable market consolidation in a struggling music industry?

 - In the mid-1990s we had 6 majors, now we have 3.  Is BMG Rights a challenger for the 4th spot?

  - Does this provide additional marketing clout for artists fortunate enough to remain on major label rosters? Or reduced competition in a market where fewer artists sign to majors? If the latter, will Universal only sign artists who include all non-recorded music income streams within the deal (the 360 model)?

 - For B2B music users (brands who license recordings & songs), what does this development mean? Surely reduced competition, which usually leads to proportionally smaller synch licensing teams dealing with larger catalogues and a marked increase in licensing fees. Slower service at higher cost?

 - Monopoly enquiries (certainly in Universal's case) forcing the disposal of some recorded catalogues as part of the transaction? This previously occurred when Universal Music Publishing acquired BMG Music Publishing in 2006 (resulting in the sale of Zomba, Rondor, 19 & BBC catalogues to Imagem.)

 My thoughts are with the staff of EMI, as the only certainty is that many of them will face an uncertain future.

Your thoughts?
