Indie' Record Labels Say Big Firms Stifle Industry

Thu Nov 18,11:02 AM ET

By Mike Collett-White

LONDON (Reuters) - When the curtain goes up on MTV's Europe Awards in Rome on Thursday, only one of 11 performers will be signed to an independent record label.

And at European pop music's annual showcase event, the majority of acts will be from the United States.

The independent record industry says the business has been taken over by four mega-companies that are helping to entrench American cultural "hegemony" across the music world.

The interesting thing is that the companies arent really all American owned... Vivendi, Sony, BMG - when did they become American?

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
