In the last weeks we have implemented some new features and functions to improve your workflow with the Content Management Console (CMC):
NEW: Clone Bundle
To simplify the creation of similar products (e.g. for different release strategies or just very similar bundles), you can now clone an existing bundle. The “clone” will contain the same tracks, territories, price tiers and distribution channels, also the complete metadata except from catalogue number, EAN/UPC code and of course the cover artwork.
NEW: Trend Figures Status
As the daily trends in the analytic section are only estimated and not 100% reliable sales figures that we get from the shops by feed, there’s not guarantee that the shops have actually provided us with current figures.
Under Analytics -> Audio -> Trend Status you can see which shop has provided us with daily trends or not (yet).
NEW: Youtube Claims (Beta)
On the product info page you can now see which Youtube Videos have claimed the audio tracks included in your bundle (if your channel is managed by daredo GmbH). Please not that the tab loading time may be a bit longer.
Breaking news: YouTube finally subscribes a licensing deal with GEMA to host music videos in Germany.
We’re excited to let you know that the German music rights collection society GEMA and YouTube have come to an agreement, which will be effective as of November 1, 2016. This agreement benefits the entire YouTube community as well as songwriters, composers and music publishers represented by GEMA.
Most importantly, it will also benefit you and your artists. Music content that was previously blocked in the absence of an agreement with GEMA can now be viewed by the German, Austrian and Swiss YouTube audience. Additionally, this will bring more revenue opportunities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland for your music content.
Please check if you have already delivered the correct ownership information for Germany, Austria and Switzerland on your Music Video and Sound Recording assets. If not, please make sure that you update your assets as soon as possible or get in contact with our Youtube Music Manager Jadranka Celik
Halloween, a contraction of “All Hallows’ Evening”, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on October 31, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. It initiates the triduum of Hallowmas, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers. Typical festive Halloween activities include “trick or treating”, attending costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories, and watching horror movies. Because of this, CiNENET Germany presents the „Halloween 2016 Horror Special“ playlist with films like “Zombie War”, “Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies”, “Haunting of Whaley House”, “Clown Of Fear” and more!
