Ein ‚innovatives‘ Geschäftsmodell, das die Universal Music Group da gefunden hat:
Universal bezahlt Künstler nicht. Universal wird von Künstlern verklagt. Universal muss zahlen. Universal glaubt, dafür muss die Versicherung aufkommen.
it turns out that Universal Music Group actually seems to think that its insurance company should be paying the $14.4 million it owes (UMG’s share of the $45 million). It’s now suing its insurance company for refusing to pay. If you think about it for a second, you realize just how insane this claim is. Basically, Universal Music is claiming that it can simply not pay any royalties at all, then wait to get sued… and if it loses and has to pay, it believes its insurance company has to foot the bill. Now there’s a business model!
