Good morning, it’s Friday, December 11, 2009, and this is your first early morning digital briefing.
Nielsen Business Media found a buyer for The Hollywood Reporter and 7 related media-themed publications including Billboard, Adweek and Mediaweek. E5 Global Media is the buyer, a new entity formed by equity firm Pluribus Capital Management and financial services firm Guggenheim Partners. Not all of Nielsen’s business pubs are changing hands. Nielsen is shuttering Editor & Publisher and Editorandpublisher.com after 108 years of covering the newspaper and magazine businesses, after a year of great suffering in print media. The company is also ceasing book review title Kirkus Reviews. Lachlan Murdoch, the oldest son of News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch, had been rumored to be among the buyers of the Nielsen books but he was not part of the transaction.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has released its congressionally mandated report, Virtual Worlds and Kids: Mapping the Risks, which examines the incidence of explicit content in online virtual worlds. The FTC surveyed 27 online virtual worlds, including those specifically targeted to young kids, analyzing how easily kids/tweens can access explicit content in virtual worlds and what virtual world operators are doing to prevent minors from accessing that content. The findings of the report reveal that while there is little explicit content on kids-aimed worlds, such content is moderate to heavy on worlds designed for teens and adults. Following up, the FTC suggests that kids and parents become better educated about online virtual worlds and that operators: Use more effective age-screening mechanisms; use or enhance age-segregation techniques; re-examine language filters; provide more guidance to community enforcers in virtual worlds and report violators or potential underage users; and employ a staff of specially trained moderators who are equipped to take swift action against rule violations.
