‘Solid irony here’: The cofounder of speaker firm Sonos called out Spotify billionaire Daniel Ek for criticizing Apple’s closed system – Silicon Alley
The cofounder of smart speaker firm Sonos called out Spotify CEO Daniel Ek for his remarks on Apple's closed ecosystem.
In a Wednesday interview with Bloomberg News, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek had said Apple has a long way to go before it's an "open and fair platform." Spotify is currently pursuing an antitrust complaint against Apple.
Shortly after Ek's remarks, Sonos cofounder John MacFarlane said it was "significantly more difficult to work within Spotify's 'closed' ecosystem than Apple's."
Sonos, which makes high-end speakers, is reliant on third-party partnerships with services like Spotify, and it's clear those haven't always gone smoothly.

Apple was started in a garage on this day in 1976. Here are the modest beginnings of 5 tech companies worth billions today. (GOOG, MSFT, AAPL, AMZN) – Silicon Alley

Ted Sarandos: Coronavirus Has Been ‘Massive Disruption’ for Netflix – The Wrap
Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos says that all of the streaming service’s “productions around the world are shut down” because of the coronavirus pandemic, which he calls “a massive disruption.”
“It’s unprecedented in history,” Sarandos told CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday.
Even as usage of their service has increased from millions of people worldwide staying home on lockdown, Netflix is still navigating the coronavirus crisis.
He noted that because Netflix plans “pretty far ahead” on developing new shows, the service’s release schedule is set for the next several months. He said that the challenge will come later in the year, as shows and films that were in production for release in late 2020 have been put on pause due to the ongoing pandemic...

NBCUniversal Has Sold Its $500 Million Stake In Snap, But Will Continue On As Content Partner – Tubefilter
NBCUniversal -- which comprises TV property NBC as well as film studio Universal Pictures -- is getting out of the Snapchat business.
As first spotted by The Hollywood Reporter, in a 10-K filing by parent company Comcast from Jan. 31, the media conglomerate sold its entire $500 million stake in Snapchat parent company Snap. NBCU first announced that it was investing half a billion dollars into Snap three years ago, as the company was going public, amid other investments by NBCU into digital properties BuzzFeed and Vox.
The Reporter reports that the sale likely serves to offset the reported $2 billion that Comcast is deploying to launch its own streaming service, Peacock, as well as the $39 billion it spent to acquire British media and telecom conglomerate Sky. Per the filming, Comcast recorded a $293 million gain on the sale of its Snap equity in fiscal 2019, but lost $263 million on the investment in 2018, when Snap’s stock price fell in the wake of its IPO....

Led Zeppelin Land Major Victory in ‘Stairway to Heaven’ Copyright Case – The Wrap
Led Zeppelin won a major copyright battle settling a dispute over whether the band’s iconic “Stairway to Heaven” song stole from Spirit’s 1968 song “Taurus.”
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a jury’s previous decision which found Led Zeppelin to be in the right in 2016. Monday’s decision follows an appellate court vote to re-do of the trial with a larger panel of judges.
