More on the Need to Make Clear Who Owns Digital and Social Media Assets

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Fri 10 Aug 2018 4:54 pm

Last week, we wrote about legal issues for podcasters, and made the point that media companies should be making clear by contract or otherwise who owns the podcasts that their employees and independent contractors have created. This week, there was press coverage (see, for instance, the article here) about a law suit filed by a newspaper company against a former employee seeking ownership of a Twitter account used by the employee while at the newspaper and then taken by that employee to his new employer. The company claims that the Twitter account, covering a local college sports team, was property not of the employee, but of the newspaper – pointing out that the account had actually been started by a predecessor employee, and that the employee handbook gave all rights to intellectual property, trade secrets and other intangibles created by the employee during the course of his employment to the newspaper company. The fact that a lawsuit was filed must indicate that the former employee is not ready to accept the newspaper’s position on the subject. For readers of this blog, what it does is reiterate our suggestion last week that media companies make sure that it is clear, in legally binding documents, who owns intellectual property created by employees and contractors. And this should include not just podcasts, but webpages, blogs, and social media accounts and similar assets – all being important aspects of today’s relationship between media companies and their customers.

Comment Dates Set on FCC Proposals for Dealing with False EAS Alerts

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Fri 10 Aug 2018 4:51 pm

Last week, we wrote about FCC changes to its EAS rules, including the adoption (not yet effective) of a requirement that a broadcast station report to the FCC when they broadcast a false EAS alert. In the order adopting that requirement and other changes to EAS practices, the FCC also issued a Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, suggesting other EAS changes to deal with false alerts – including asking if it should create a more detailed reporting system for false alerts, whether state EAS plans should be required to be amended to add procedures for dealing with false alerts, and looking for details about the delivery of wireless alerts to cell phones and other mobile devices. The Further Notice has now been published in the Federal Register. Comment dates on the Further Notice are due by September 10, and replies by October 9.

Everybody get up! The dance crazes changing the world

Drake’s In My Feelings is the latest viral sensation to get people moving. And from black culture to queer identity to feminism, the global reach of pop choreography makes it the perfect way to change cultural perceptions

When In My Feelings hit No 1 in the US last month, it meant not only that Drake had racked up more weeks at the top of the chart than any male solo artist in 60 years, it also established the latest in a long history of viral dance crazes.

The trend was kicked off by Instagram comedian Shiggy dancing along to the track, his moves perfectly synced to Drake’s lines: hands shaped into a heart when Drake asks if Kiki loves him; turning an imaginary steering wheel for lyrics about “riding”; waggling his finger back and forth when Drake asks Kiki to say she will never leave his side. Instagram users around the world followed suit, mimicking those moves and adding their own flair, often hopping out of a moving car while doing so, to the horror of the police. The #InMyFeelings challenge was born, making it the latest instance in which pop and dance have proved inseparable.

Ben Khan: Ben Khan review – singular coiled-lust electropop

Delivered... Ben Beaumont-Thomas | Scene | Fri 10 Aug 2018 10:30 am

Dirty Hit

There’s an appealingly raw, bedroom-recorded quality to this debut album from London producer-singer Ben Khan – if his bedroom had a Narnia-like portal at the back of his wardrobe. Producer Flood (U2, the Killers, PJ Harvey) brings little big-budget gloss, but there’s a singular and rather fantastical vision nonetheless. Sinister John Carpenter synth sounds emerge like neon beams through a hail of dust, but are put to the service of often extremely funky pop.

The magnificent Monsoon Daydream gets so caught up in its own groove it shudders and trips over itself – the dense arrangement, full to the brim with raunchily screwball licks and a flutter of glockenspiel, is reminiscent of early Jamie Lidell, as is Khan’s voice. There’s also a touch of Twin Shadow’s dramatic timbre, while Jai Paul’s still-classic Jasmine heavily scents Ruby. ATW (Against the Wall) has the taut funk and guitar strums of Justin Timberlake’s first tracks with the Neptunes, done lo-fi, and shares their same coiled lust. Indeed, Khan sounds perpetually on the verge of getting laid, with lots of loaded lyrics about honey and tempestuous weather, but he powerfully matches them with the production, which feels as humid as the air before a thunderstorm.
