IN THE NEWS
Broadcast networks scored a win against Locast. A judge from the Southern District of New York granted a motion by ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC to throw out Locast’s claim that its streaming service is legally exempt from copyright infringement liability because it collects donations, not fees. In fact, Locast, which characterizes its $5/month charge for service as a recurring gift to a charitable cause, is using the money to bankroll expansion, taking in “far more money from user charges than was necessary,” said the judge. In their lawsuit, the networks claim Locast is violating their copyright by stealing their local TV streams.
In response, Locast cried foul. The ruling “treats copyright law not as an engine of progress but a moat protecting the most privileged position of the four giant broadcasting networks,” said the company.
The Writers Guild of America was among a coalition of 34 groups urging the FTC to block Amazon’s proposed $8.45 billion deal to acquire MGM. “With more control over the streaming, advertising, and media distribution ecosystem Amazon can extract unfair concessions from independent content producers and workers in the industry,” said a letter to FTC chair Lina Khan. “All of this means Amazon can exert greater control even outside of the portions of commerce it directly owns. And ultimately it means consumers, businesses, and the workers that depend on them are subject entirely to Amazon’s whims.” The deal would give Amazon the rich content library of MGM, including the James Bond and Rocky franchises.
The Media Rating Council is suspending its accreditation of Nielsen’s National Television service, as well as its Local People Meter and Set Meter Markets services, effective mid-September. Suspension can occur when a company is found to have “material standards non-compliance or operational issues that are deemed to have exerted an adverse effect on the service,” said the MRC. Responded a spokesperson for the measurement company, “Nielsen remains the currency of choice for media companies, advertisers and agencies. We are committed to the audit process and during this pause in accreditation we will work with the MRC on resolving this suspension. We will also take the opportunity to focus on innovating our core products and continue to deliver data that clients can rely on, ultimately creating a better media future for the entire industry.”
