Setlist Podcast

Setlist is taking a week off this week, but don’t forget there are lots of episodes available in the archive to help you navigate and understand the business of music.

Following last week’s ruling in the big old ‘Shape Of You’ song theft litigation, you can check our recent discussion of that legal battle and court case here.

If you’re a fan of music industry stats, make sure you don’t miss this stats-packed edition from last month.

If you’ve been following the dispute over how comedians are paid by the streaming services, we explain what’s going on there in this recent edition.

And at the start of the year we talked about the five companies likely to find themselves involved in music industry controversies in 2022. Tune in to see what those companies were – we’re we right to predict some controversial moments for said businesses?

Meanwhile, there’s also various special editions you can still check out – like our 2020 guide to the economics of streaming debate (part one and part two).

A lot’s happened since then in terms of that debate, of course, but the ten things people get wrong about streaming discussed in those special editions are, well, still the ten things people get wrong about streaming!

And even deeper in the archive, there are the retrospective special editions from 2018 and 2019 where we tell stories of The Pirate Bay, MegaUpload, Napster, the battle against secondary ticketing, and much more.

Happy listening everybody!
