    • By law, AM and FM stations do not have to pay record companies or performing artists for music — but webcasters like Pandora do.
    • Critics have called this a form of payola. Mr. McAndrews dismissed that as a “silly criticism,” saying, “The only payment happening here is from us to Merlin — you could argue it is the opposite of payola.” Merlin, which is expected to file a response to Pandora’s filing soon, declined to comment.

      The Copyright Royalty Board case, which will set rates for all webcasters for 2016 to 2020, will be decided by the end of the year.

      Mr. McAndrews played down the tension over royalties and described a three-pronged strategy for Pandora in 2015 that involved improving its app for users, increasing advertising revenue and making good on the company’s long-promised offer to help musicians.

      “In the content industry, there is always going to be some tension between distributors and content providers,” Mr. McAndrews said.

      “What’s important is, are you having a dialogue?” he added. “Are you educating each other on where you’re coming from, and are you trying to find win-win solutions? And that’s what we’re doing.”

    • Marketing Advisor
      Austin

      The Marketing Advisor will generate new business and increase profitability from existing accounts by engaging current and potential customers in productive dialogue regarding Volusion’s Internet Marketing Services. This quota carrying position will also involve communication between multiple departments, and documentation of account activity using Salesforce.

    • Michael Chabon’s Adventures Of Kavalier And Clay does a great job of encapsulating the importance of the origin story to superheroes, the way in which it propels everything that happens after.
    • Now we’re stuck with a Kirk who was a Rebel Without A Cause who got himself expelled from the Academy, until a father figure talked to him, and gave him a shot, and then he miraculously became Captain overnight. The more we learned about how special he was, the less special he seemed — because he was just like every other movie hero of the past decade. Call him James T. Witwicky.
