WMG Chairman Edgar Bronfman Jr. on Apple, Spotify and the Fate of EMI (Video)

Outgoing Warner Music Group Chairman Edgar Bronfman Jr. had a lot to say on the D: Dive Into Media stage today. In a wide-ranging interview with host Peter Kafka, Bronfman talked about the fate of EMI, the value of services like Spotify, and what he would change about the recording industry’s deal with Apple.

“Apple from day one believed in music and content,” Bronfman said. “That was the good news. The bad news is that they decided all songs were created equal, and I fought Steve on that. … Ultimately, Apple got the better part of that deal. Ultimately, I wish we’d gotten more pricing flexibility.”

Below, video highlights from the session:
