Summary:
The U.S. Department of Justice is reportedly investigating possible pricing coordination by Sony's Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Vivendi's Universal Music Publishing. The Justice Department has also requested documents from music licensing organizations, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers and Broadcast Music, according to The Wall Street Journal. The Journal said the Justice Department is investigating Sony and Universal's efforts to withdraw their rights from the organizations' licensing agreements with Internet radio company Pandora. A U.S. District Judge found earlier this year that Sony and Universal coordinated with ASCAP to drive Pandora's licensing rates higher. TheStreet's Brittany Umar has details from New York.

Sony PlayStation, Microsoft Xbox Give Booster to July Retail Sales

TheStreet (Aug. 15, 2014) — Next-generation consoles helped boost gaming software and hardware sales in the U.S. since June. Video game sales, including hardware and accessories, jumped 16% from a year earlier to $514.3 million, according to market researcher NPD Group. That increase was driven by the continued success of Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One, the latest iterations of their gaming consoles which had near simultaneous releases last November. PlayStation 4 held its lead as top-selling console, a spot it has commanded over Xbox for seven consecutive months. Sony said it has sold more than 10 million units worldwide so far.
