The April report begins with the battle between Apple and the European Commission, as the latter imposed its first-ever fine on Apple for allegedly breaking the European Union (EU) competition law over its music streaming service. In addition, the report focuses on two studies from the European Audiovisual Observatory dealing with the European audiovisual streaming market. Moreover, the report highlights two key statements coming from a high number of organizations active in the cultural and creative industries, which are asking for a targeted regulation toward artificial intelligence (AI) systems and practices of streaming platforms. The report also focuses on the new study from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) on the global recorded music revenues. Finally, the report emphasizes new partnerships and the struggle for subscribers and geographical expansion among streaming services, focusing on BBC, Disney Plus, Spotify, and France Télévisions.
