Irish ISP is forced to set up three-strikes
The High Court in Ireland has told internet service provider UPC that it must introduce a three-strikes system to help combat online piracy. It means the net firm must start sending warning letters to suspected file-sharers with the threat of sanctions against those customers who ignore the warnings, and according to the ruling the record companies need only cover 20% of the costs associated with the scheme.

Five years ago three-strikes was the anti-piracy measure of choice for many copyright owners, with lobbying efforts by music and movie companies in various countries, including the UK, resulting in an obligation on ISPs to operate some kind of 'graduated response' system being added to copyright law. Not that it ever really got off the ground here, and even the French system - perhaps the fiercest of all the three-strikes initiatives - somewhat ran aground when it reached strike three.

However, in Ireland, market-leading ISP Eircom voluntarily introduced three-strikes as part of a settlement deal with the major record companies. For their part the labels agreed to pressure the net firm's competitors to likewise join the three-strikes party, but Ireland's other ISPs were not keen on the idea, and fought back in both the press and the courts. UPC was particularly vocal in its opposition to the three-strikes system, arguing - with some success - that only a change in Irish law could force its hand.

But last year the Irish record industry launched new legal proceedings against the ISP, perhaps feeling that opinion in both political and judicial circles had shifted in its favour on this issue in recent years. And seemingly it was right.

Based on arguments presented to Ireland's Commercial Court in January, the judge hearing the case published his ruling last week, and pretty much sided with the labels outright, rejecting UPC's argument that it wasn't its job to police how its customers use the internet. Saying that "wholesale theft" was occurring on UPC's networks, judge Brian Cregan ruled that "the [illegal] downloading of music for free is destroying the intellectual property rights of creative artists and should be a matter of great concern in any civilised society".

According to Ireland's Independent newspaper, he went on: "The current generation of writers, performers and interpreters of music cannot have their livelihoods destroyed by advances in technology which allow persons to breach their constitutional rights with impunity".

UPC and the labels now have a month to propose to the court how they will implement the new three-strikes system. It remains to be seen if UPC has any more fight in it, and if not, whether similar action will now be taken by the labels against the other ISPs in Ireland.

Weatherley puts focus on safe harbours with one last IP report
As Parliament wound up last week ahead of the upcoming election most general, Mike Weatherley, outgoing MP for Hove and, for a time, IP Advisor to David Cameron, published one last paper on intellectual property issues in a bid to input on the current review of European copyright law in Brussels.

The focus of last week's paper was the role of internet service providers and other web players in policing online piracy. And in particular the so called 'safe-harbour' clauses that were included in early internet regulation and which many in the content industries reckon have been used by web companies to knock back reasonable requests to stop third parties distributing unlicensed content online.

Although the safe-harbours contained in American law are more commonly discussed - with the 'DMCA takedown requests' now routinely filed by content companies against firms like Google stemming from the same legislation - similar provisions to protect tech companies were included in the European Union's E-Commerce Directive in 2000.

Commenting on his latest paper, Weatherley told reporters: "As the former Intellectual Property Advisor to the Prime Minister, I felt that it was important to continue to highlight the issues that have grave consequences for our fantastic creative industries. The creative industries are huge contributors to our economy so it's vital, in order to protect them, that the regulations which were set out in 2000 are updated. The broad scope of the Directive results in rights holders losing out to pirates on an industrial scale".

The safe-harbours debate will be explored in more detail in the April edition of the CMU Trends Report, available to premium subscribers. But meanwhile, the newly vocal British Academy Of Songwriters And Composers has already welcomed Weatherley's report, confirming that reform of safe-harbour rules are on its agenda too.

BASCA boss Vick Bain told reporters: "BASCA fully supports the conclusions and recommendations contained in Mike Weatherley's report. We think there is an urgent need for a debate on the issues raised and on the role of ISPs in the ongoing battle against copyright infringement".

She went on: "ISPs need to not only be 'more proactive' in taking down multiple copies of infringing works; they need to take down and keep down all copies of infringing works, not just the specific cases they are notified of. We would also encourage the UK Government to go even further, particularly on the subject of safe-harbour provisions, which are being systematically abused by some platforms, and we hope that this is the start of a constructive and collaborative debate on issues that directly impact songwriters and composers".

Police regulator reports on first investigation relating to Ian Watkins case
The Independent Police Complaints Commission has reported on one of three investigations it instigated following the arrest and subsequent conviction of one time Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins, who was found guilty of sexual abuse against very young children. The investigations were launched following complaints that three separate police forces failed to properly respond to earlier reports of the singer's crimes

The first investigation to be completed focuses on the conduct of officers working for Bedfordshire Police. Joanne Mjadzelics, a former girlfriend of Watkins and a key witness in the case, said that police had failed to fully investigate, and to protect an eighteen month old infant, after she first made allegations against the singer and a woman known as "Miss A" in October 2012.

But the IPCC ruled last week that Bedfordshire Police did, in fact, take immediate steps to investigate Mjadzelics' allegations, and to safeguard the infant in question, though two officers did fail to pursue all reasonable lines of enquiry, and to properly record why they had decided not to pursue said enquiries.

Commenting on the findings of the Commission's investigation, IPCC Commissioner Jan Williams said: "Bedfordshire Police officers did respond in a timely way to the allegation made by Joanne Mjadzelics in 2012, and demonstrably had the welfare of Miss A's child uppermost in their minds. Nothing was found by our investigation to say the force could definitely have prevented any offending, or contributed to bringing Ian Watkins to justice sooner".

"However", the Commissioner continued, "there were some more investigative steps detectives could have taken, including the earlier seizure and analysis of electronic equipment belonging to Miss A. The two officers subject to the IPCC investigation stated that they did not believe there were grounds to seize Miss A's devices, and it is regrettable that they failed to document their decision-making in this regard".

The IPCC then said that it agreed with Bedfordshire Police's decision that the two detectives should receive "management action", noting that the force was also providing briefings to officers within the force's Public Protection Unit "as a result of learning from the investigation".

Separate IPCC investigations into the conduct of officers involved in this case in South Wales and South Yorkshire are ongoing. Watkins, of course, was sentenced to 29 years in prison in December 2013 for crimes against children described by the judge presiding as reaching "new depths of depravity".

BMG announces Alibaba alliance
BMG has announced an alliance with Chinese web giant Alibaba as part of its plan to make China a "priority territory".

Through the partnership with Alibaba's digital entertainment division, BMG writers and artists will be promoted through a number of the Chinese firm's channels and apps, while the new partner will also monitor and take action against the unlicensed use of BMG-repped repertoire in the region.

Confirming the deal, BMG China's Chief Investment Officer Dora Yi told reporters: "This is a game-changing deal for BMG. Alibaba is one of the most progressive and successful companies in China and is the ideal partner for us as we begin to unleash the potential of BMG's catalogue here".

Meanwhile Patrick Liu, President of Alibaba's digital entertainment business, added: "We are delighted to join hands with BMG to develop a new business model that combines music with e-commerce in China's entertainment sector. Our rich experience in big data analysis will help us lead innovation in the music industry that ultimately enhances customer experience".

Duran Duran sign to Warner Bros
Warner Bros US has only gone and signed Duran Duran to one of those record deals everyone still seems to love, with the mini-major set to release the band's fourteenth studio album, which has just been completed with production input from Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson and Mr Hudson, and is now scheduled for a September release.

Confirming the deal, Warner Bros US President Dan McCarroll employed these words (at least one of which I think you could have predicted): "I am thrilled to welcome Duran Duran into the Warner Bros family. This is an iconic, enduring band that continues to make brilliant, timeless pop music".

On the new record, he continued: "The combination of Duran Duran, Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson and Mr Hudson is a dream team, and the songs they have created together for this new record are as fresh and compelling as anything in the band's long career. All of us at WBR are looking forward to working with Simon, Nick, John, and Roger as they begin this exciting new chapter".

And if you thought the band were left speechless by their latest record deal, you'd be wrong. Though they were struggling to work out how to be happier. Said bassist John Taylor: "We could not be happier to be making this deal with Warner Bros, and are looking forward to working on our forthcoming album release with not only their US team but also everyone else within the Warner family around the world".

Roc Nation hasn't bought the unreleased Tupac archives
Jay-Z's Roc Nation may be busy trying to turn the social networks turquoise ahead of the big Tidal relaunch later today, but the company has not acquired all the unreleased recordings of Tupac Shakur for $384 million. I mean, there has to be something left in music not owned by a Live Nation subsidiary, right?

Of course, you might be claiming to have never even considered that Roc Nation might be buying the unreleased Shakur archives, but we can't know with 100% certainty that it wasn't you spreading rumours to that effect over the weekend.

Gossipers said that Roc Nation had done a deal with E1 Entertainment, the company that finally ended up with the assets of one time hip hop label Death Row Records (even though a row over who had control of the Shakur archives did follow that acquisition). But a spokesman for Roc Nation has told Billboard that rumours Jay-Z's firm has bought the Shakur recordings are just not true.

The rumours also referenced a planned upcoming release of previously unheard work by Shakur, which very possibly is true. Reps for the late rapper's estate have already announced plans for an apparel collection, official biography and possibly new recorded material as the twentieth anniversary of Shakur's untimely passing approaches.

Madison Square Garden Company to go ahead with business split
The Madison Square Garden Company is ploughing ahead with previously mooted plans to split itself into two separate publicly listed companies. Music and live entertainment will sit in one business, while the firm's media interests will go in the other. MSG's sporting interests will seemingly sit with the former.

Confirming the split plans were now going ahead, the company said in a statement on Friday: "After review, MSG's board of directors believes that, while MSG has created significant shareholder value since it was established as a public company five years ago, separating MSG's live sports and entertainment businesses from its media business now would further enhance the long-term value-creation potential of both businesses".

Synergies between the entertainment and media sides of MSG would continue after the split, the statement added, saying: "While the companies would continue to benefit from commercial arrangements between them, the separation would provide each company with increased strategic flexibility to pursue its own distinctive business plan and allow each to have a capital structure and capital return policy that is appropriate for its business".

As for how it would work from a shareholder's perspective, the statement concluded: "Upon completion of the spin-off, MSG shareholders would own shares in both companies and have the ability to evaluate each company's current business and future prospects in making investment decisions".

Pop stars get a-tweeting ahead of big Tidal relaunch
So, Jay-Z is trying to turn the social networks turquoise ahead of tonight's big Tidal relaunch in the US, following the hip hopper's acquisition of the Nordic streaming firm earlier this month.

A plethora of big popstar names - most seemingly managed by Roc Nation or other management firms within the Live Nation group (or personal mates with Mr Z) - have been bigging up the double-priced high audio quality streaming set-up on the Twitters this morning.

In addition to the FLAC quality audio that has been core to Tidal since it was spun off from existing streaming service WiMP last year (WiMP offering both standard and high quality audio), it is thought Jay-Z's Tidal will also seek to offer a stack of content exclusives to persuade fans to not only pay for their streams, but to pay double the standard rate for premium streaming in the US and Europe.

So that's all fun isn't it?

Dermot O'Leary quits X-Factor
Dermot O'Leary has announced that he is leaving 'X-Factor', after eight years hosting the show.

In a statement, O'Leary said: "After eight wonderful years on 'The X Factor' it's time for me to move on. I'd like to thank ITV, Simon [Cowell], the 'X-Factor' family and particularly the viewers, all of whom have been a big part of my life for so long. I'd like to wish the team all the best for the future, especially whoever takes over from me. You're about to be the conductor on the most brilliant, runaway train in showbiz. Good luck, you'll love it!"

An ITV spokesperson added: "Dermot's been a fantastic host of 'The X-Factor' for the past eight series and we're sorry to see him go. We wish him all the very best for the future and hope that he'll be back on ITV screens soon".

Whether or not he will remains to be seen. O'Leary will continue to present his show on BBC Radio 2 though, and has been tipped by bookies to replace Jeremy Clarkson on 'Top Gear'.

CMU Business Editor shares the background to music licensing strand at The Great Escape
CMU Business Editor Chris Cooke has expanded on the CMU Insights conference strand Music Licensing: Explained At Last!, which will take place during The Great Escape this May. Details of the strand - which is supported by PPL and PRS For Music - were announced last week, with BASCA, IFPI, CISAC, Clintons, Believe Digital and CI amongst the organisations due to take part.

Explaining the rationale for the strand, Cooke references the artist survey on streaming presented by Dan Le Sac at last year's TGE: "A key theme running throughout was that artists felt decidedly uninformed about how labels and publishers were licensing these platforms, how royalties were being calculated, and what happened to the money once the DSPs had paid the rights owners. Many felt that they had been too often left out of discussions about the future of digital music".

He goes on: "Ultimately artists and songwriters don't need to know the minute details, and the basic rule is quite simple: to succeed you need people to spend more of their time online streaming your tracks. But when an industry is in flux, all stakeholders should take part in the debate, and that means that at this stage all parties should know a little more about what is going on".

"Which brings us to Music Licensing: Explain At Last! Over this one-day strand we will explain - for artists and songwriters, producers and managers, labels and publishers, licensees, and anyone else who needs to know - how music licensing works across the board, and where the money is being made, from physical sales and sync, to public performance and broadcast income, to the various types of digital services".

"And then - with reps from the record industry, music publishing and the legal profession on board - we will explain how digital platforms are being licensed, how royalties are calculated, and what happens to the money once the DSPs have paid the rights owners".

Which will in turn lead to the big 'digital pie' debate that has become increasingly noisy in recent months. Vick Bain from BASCA will explain why songwriters have become particularly vocal in this domain, "but all sides will be represented" Cooke adds, "as we consider all the arguments and, perhaps more importantly, beyond The Great Escape stage, what is the best forum where this debate can take place day-to-day, so that all voices are heard, but the music industry doesn't have to fight its internal battles too much in the public eye".

  Approved: Okay Kaya
Now that it's officially (British) summer (time), I think we should start this week in a lower gear, and Okay Kaya's 'Damn, Gravity' fits the bill perfectly. A sleepy song, the guitar and keys are gently layered underneath Kaya's soft but arresting vocals.

Her online presence is currently pretty sparse, all other tracks apart from this one having been scrubbed from the internet, but 'Damn, Gravity' says more than enough. And those able to get to Tobias Jesso Jr's current US dates will have the opportunity to find out more.

Kanye West and Damon Dash buy bankrupt fashion brand
Kanye West and Damon Dash have clubbed together to buy fashion brand Karmaloop, after the company went into bankruptcy last week. Dash announced the news via Instagram. Of course.

On one of a number of posts showing Dash and West together, the former wrote: "Yeah, the Karmaloop thing is real. This is exactly how I saw things ten years ago and [Kanye's] doing some shit that even I couldn't do but it's not my place to speak on it, but let's just say I am proud as fuck. That's the way it's supposed to be. The younger dudes are supposed to be better than us. That's what we fight for".

I'm not sure that clarifies anything, really. So, er, here's some sort of new Karmaloop logo instead.
