EU Restarts Sony/BMG Investigation

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

The Wall Street Journal reports that the EU has restarted its investigation into the merger of their respective music units that took place in 2004.  We will know by October what DG Comp thinks of this deal.  Given the explosion on online music sales since 2004, I wonder how much this will affect the Commission's thinking about the deal.  One positive effect of the merger is that you can watch music videos from the company's large stable of artists here including some vintage videos of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band from the 1970s.
