Recorded Music and Music Publishing

This update on the prospects for the global recorded music market in the period to 2012 reveals the depth of the industry's woes from steep declines in CD sales in most major markets. Rising sales from downloads and ringtones could stabilise overall sales by 2009 at around $23 billion, far from the peak of $45 billion achieved in 1997. Declining CD volumes are among the principal factors limiting growth of music publisher revenues to a CAGR of 2.2% over 2006-2012, despite continued strong growth of performance revenues from live events and broadcast media, including the internet

Iliad 2006 FY results

Iliad’s 2006 results were solid with broadband subscriber growth on target, DSL market share up one point to 19%, ARPU up 7% to €34.5/month and churn (enviably) at just below 1% per month.

Sky's purchase of ITV shares

Using a little understood provision of the merger rules, the government has asked Ofcom to take a look at the Sky stake in ITV, just in case the OFT did not come up with the right answer the first time round. As a result of the intervention, Ofcom will decide whether the share purchase reduced the number of separately managed broadcasters in the UK. Since this is almost exactly what the OFT is already doing, it is impossible to see how Ofcom could reach a different conclusion to the OFT. In this sense, the intervention has little point
