By | Published on Tuesday 1 September 2015


Yet another month has past, despite our best efforts, so the only thing left to do is take a look at the ten most-read news stories on the CMU website during said calendar period.

Topping the list in August was the Motion Picture Association Of America’s decision to drop its attempts to get web-blocking in place Stateside through the US courts. Though that decision, the MPAA insisted, was nothing to do with big tech’s written opposition to it.

Before you go and look through the full list, let’s have a quick look at our five most popular features in August. Topping that countdown is an interview with DigMark’s Aileen Crowley on the emerging business of promoting tracks to Spotify playlist owners. Following that are four editions of the CMU Podcast, looking at the digital pie, Apple Music, the MPAA case mentioned above, Baboom, and more.
