Google tickets: FanFair Alliance sees ‘room for improvement’

Yesterday, we reported on Google implementing its new policy for secondary ticketing ads on its search engine. Now UK lobbying group FanFair Alliance has issued its response, which welcomes the changes while urging Google to go further.
“FanFair unequivocally welcomes the updates to Google’s ad policies. As a result of these changes, we are already witnessing greater clarity in how the largest secondary websites present themselves to users,” it claimed in a statement issued yesterday.
“However, on the evidence so far, there is room for improvement – and especially in regards to the secondary platforms’ paid advertising on Google.”

“Losses at Adjusted LBITDA level are expected to be significantly reduced from the previous period and be better than market expectations,” claimed the company in its update to the markets.
7digital says operational restructuring is already underway following its acquisition of 24-7 Entertainment last June, including “the closure of the company’s office in Paris and a reduction in headcount”.

Napster appoints Bill Patrizio as president and CEO

Streaming service Napster has a new, permanent boss. Bill Patrizio is no stranger to the company though: he was named as interim CEO in May 2017, while retaining his position as president of consumer media at RealNetworks – which continues to hold a stake in Napster.
“He has led a resurgence of the company in its new partner-oriented focus,” said co-chairmen Rob Glaser and Jason Epstein in a statement. “Bill has a track record of resilience and operational success, and a passion for the industry that will lead Napster forward into its next phase of innovation and growth.”

Amazon Alexa gets new music-playlist creation features

Amazon hasn’t made a big deal of its latest smart-speaker feature, but it’s an extremely interesting development for anyone who’s been thinking about how playlists evolve in a world of voice control.
Users – initially on Prime Music and Amazon Music Unlimited in the US, we think – can now say commands like ‘Alexa, create a new playlist’ and ‘Alexa, add this to my playlist’ – the latter used when a song is playing.
It’s the first time this has been possible using purely voice commands, rather than creating and managing playlists from Amazon’s web or mobile music interfaces.

Recording Academy faces further industry criticism

Earlier this month, a group of six senior women from the music industry wrote to the Recording Academy calling for it to up its game on diversity, and offering their help. One report yesterday suggested that they have been “seriously underwhelmed” by the response.
So, in a world where the term ‘hepeating’ has been coined to describe the situation where a woman says something in a meeting to be greeted by blank faces, only for a man to say it a few minutes later to a rapturous reception, imagine the biting irony if a new letter to the Academy from a group of senior men from the music industry gets a more convincing response?
