Still no cash flow for my OBM. But, Prince had cash flow. Now there are all sorts of problems and people fighting. Much of Prince's money will go to the Govt. Before I even realize any revenue, I want to envision giving away all the revenue. One way or another this will happen. Prince was not prepared. He was a great musician etc. but Prince got hit by the unexpected. So, who to give all the money to? How to protect quality when you are gone? Is a bank your protector? Why do you need a protector? What are you scared of? If one can run without revenue, is that good or bad? What is the value of media in a vault?




Prince’s estate and Comerica Bank & Trust, the company appointed to manage the late artist’s assets, struck back aggressively against claims of mismanagement by three of the artist’s heirs, according to a battery of documents made public Monday. The heirs, Sharon Nelson, Norrine Nelson and John Nelson, in October made a petition to dismiss Comerica as representative of the estate for reasons including what they claim is an improper and unauthorized decision to move the late artist’s much-vaunted “vault” of unreleased recordings to Los Angeles from his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota; for improperly defending a $31 million recorded-music deal with Universal Music Group that was rescinded; and essentially for being insufficiently familiar with Prince’s music and business to be a suitable representative.

In a series of heavily redacted documents, representatives for Comerica and the estate claim that many items in Prince’s vault were damaged due to neglect and poor storage procedures at Paisley Park; and that the estate’s current entertainment advisor, Troy Carter, headed off a lawsuit from Universal Music Group over disagreements involving the ownership of some recordings in the $31 million recorded-music deal negotiated by the estate’s previous advisers, L. Londell McMillan and Charles Koppelman. That deal has since been rescinded without a lawsuit; McMillan, an attorney, represents the three heirs attempting to dismiss Comerica.

Still working on revenue. This is my representative and neighbor Ryan. He is friends with Donald Trump. He helped my friend to build a house then sell it. I want Ryan politely ask the CRB to raise the royalty for video sync from $ 0.092 to $00.17.

I am a musician. I want to build stuff and sell it too.

Still no revenue... We are interested in fixing the system for everyone - not just for the one interest. There is a time limit. Project management doesn't go on for ever. There is a TIMELINE and a critical path. Waiting for SOCAN and royalty review judge. There needs to be a plan for everything not working out. It is so very possible for nothing to transpire or have it end up even worse. This is the pattern for the music industry and songwriters. People still write songs and have dreams.
The "+7 Group" is a Federated Major Music Label founded on the seminal work of Mr. W. Edwards Deming. We believe in a quality product. For advertising to exist on this label, the advertiser must represent Mr. Demming and his process. Currently the two companies, KAWAI and YAMAHA have proved them self worthy of inclusion in this business plan. Both companies have a proud history in Japan. Our musician's label is proud to be associated with both YAMAHA and KAWAI. Currently there in no revenue stream; but, that's OK. We have quality and I am happy to have quality and no money. It beats doing junk and being rich. Reminds of a famous US president. More details later.

This is what it sounds like when musicians are getting paid and have job security.

The open model continues. We continue to favor Mr. Demming and his model for quality. He actually is a neighbor back in DC. At FORD we take him seriously. Now this new Internet needs Mr. Demming. Instead of moving away, we move even more towards Demming. Cash flow is not a problem so why make it a problem? We can turn on the printing press at any time. Why not be patient.? Perhaps never turn on the printing press. Who needs it? What are some incentives besides cash? There can be other reasons for open interaction and a share economy. Sure, cash is king and it is important. This cash flow can be a tool for quality. IMHO money is like a little thing you would only do if it was fun. It should never be a chore.

What has licensing and distribution done for you lately?

Creative Commons is clearly not working. It would be nice to figure out who owns what but not hang up everyone with copyright claims. But who pays for such a computer system? It's not going to pay for it's self is it? Identity could be one portion and for profit license would be another section. There would be no PRO, no ASCAP. Everyone gets treated the same and gets the same royalty. No more fractional anything. It's too FUBAR. DOJ doesn't want it. Under Trump, forget about it. It was bad long before Trump. SOCAN could be a partner.
