RIAA to Halt Music-Swapping Lawsuits, Looking to ISPs Instead

313w ago - Update: CNET has a copy of the [Register or Login to view links] to ISPs.

I caught this on Yahoo and found it interesting (although not surprising), so here goes:

At last, the music industry admits what we've known for years: That filing music-swapping lawsuits against teenagers, little old ladies, and corpses is a fool's errand (not to mention an expensive headache for the defendants). But don't worry–the RIAA has something new up its sleeves.

The new strategy (as reported by the [Register or Login to view links]): If the music industry finds out that you're swapping music files online, it'll send an e-mail to your ISP (agreements have already hashed out agreements with "some" unnamed service providers, apparently), which will in turn forward the message to you–probably with a little "P.S." asking you to stop.

If you don't stop, well ... your service provider probably won't sue you, but it might slow down your broadband connection, or cut off your service altogether.

So, why has the RIAA changed the play? Well, maybe it's been looking at reports like [Register or Login to view links] from the NPD Group, which shows that...
 

Wal-Mart Replacing Music CDs with Blu-ray Shelf Space

50°
320w ago - Wal-Mart Stores is rapidly downsizing shelf space for music CDs while increasing availability of Blu-ray and consumer electronics in select locations, according to a new report.

The Bentonville, Ark.-based retail behemoth, citing a 23% drop in CD sales during the first four weeks of the fourth quarter, continues to scale back inventories of music packaged media; supplanting it with electronics and movies.

"We believe Wal-Mart is increasing its exposure to consumer electronics, video games and Blu-ray, and reducing floor space devoted to CDs and standard DVDs," said Richard Greenfield, analyst with Pali Capital, in a note.

Greenfield said the chain's floor space devoted to DVD, including Blu- ray, ranged from up modestly to down slightly.

Pali reported that an accelerated rate of sales decline for CDs combined with the slowing of digital unit sales had resulted in Q4 total unit sales declining 11.6%, compared to a 11.3% decline during the previous year period.

Total music sales fell 5% to 7% in the first three quarters of 2008.

In an analyst meeting last week, John Fleming, chief marketing officer with Wal-Mart, said electronics would be getting space expansion in stores due to the decline in physical packaged media.

YouTube to Begin Selling Music and Video Games

50°
324w ago - Popular video-sharing site YouTube will soon begin to sell video games and music as part of a new advertising push, according to a Reuters report (linked above).

Through a partnership with Amazon.com, YouTube pages will feature a button that takes users to the online retailer, where they will be able to buy video games, songs, and music videos. The site will also offer an iTunes link for music downloads.

Acquired by search giant Google for $1.65 billion in 2006, YouTube is estimated to pull in $200 million via ad revenue across 2009, going by analyst predictions.

That figure marks a stark contrast to the Google's own advertising revenues, which are expected to reach $27 billion in 2009.
