Key Points:

KENNY- It’s a crucial time right now especially the record labels. It’s very interesting that there’s been such a focus to change in the last year after years of self-denial. We’re in the middle of a very big push on how to deliver content and monetize it. Our business model is based on a full length CD rather than singles. At Sony BMG, there’s less A&R and a greater focus on how we’re going to distribute it. My division (licensing) is the biggest – there’s now more expectations on to deliver revenues plus promote content.
