Sony buys EMI catalogue

Just heard on the news that Sony bought the EMI catalogue and now owns 70% of the music publishing business.

All the easier to institute MQA.:wink:

They already have a major stake in EMI publishing and control the daily business / operations; so not much change to be expected. Anyway, it’s always worth to watch out for independent labels and stuff outside of the mainstream catalogue. Also a good way to circumvent third party “authentication”.
What’s a bit sad about the kind of control asserted by the big few is their grab on back catalogue stuff.

It’s plenty scary, and there’s nowhere to run away…
