MEDIA INSTIUTIONS:- There is digital intergration which improves their horizontal and vertical intergration such as through music channels such as BBC Radio 1xtra, Heart, VIVA, UK top 40
SELF PRODUCTION:- Universal records do have their own studio which is called Universal Studios Hollywood
What would the instiution do? - he first thing that a Universal-EMI super-label would probably do is to raise the already steep royalty fees for online music services like Pandora and Spotify. Universal has already set a precedent for this. In 2011 it tried to shut out French streaming site Deezer from using its catalog. The Paris high court decided against Universal, and their ruling is telling:
MORE ON PIRACY
Universal had a dominant position then, imagine the influence they would have after acquiring EMI! This is not good news for streaming services, or any of the other innovative music services out there today. Streaming business models have already proven difficult to sustain under current rates; if those rates increase the Pandoras and Spotifies of the world will find themselves in a very precarious spot
NBC Universal is one of the copyright holders involved in the "six strikes" copyright alert system but the warnings it sends out to subscribers of non-participating ISPs stand in stark contrast to the educational approach of the program. A threatening email warns the alleged file-sharers that they risk substantial monetary damages, criminal prosecution and Internet disconnections.
