As a result of the deal, Sony will control 31 percent of the lucrative music-publishing market, which deals with the copyrights for songwriting. EMI has 1.3 million songs, including classics like “Over the Rainbow” and the Motown songbook. Sony’s existing publishing enterprise, Sony/ATV, a joint venture with the estate of Michael Jackson, has about 750,000 songs, including the publishing rights to the Beatles catalog.

Right now Apple nearly owns the entire music industry, and they are close to owning the entire movie industry…we like Apple but we think its better for the consumer if there is more competition. Our goals is to help the majors see the opportunity in front of them and help the capitalize one the hottest market in history.
We haven’t forgotten about the MJ app, this is a separate division of Sony, completely unrelated, but if we make something happen on one side of Sony, it will probably help us on the other side. We really want Sony to succeed,
