The head of a group representing the UK’s biggest music labels has urged his industry to work closely with network operators, claiming that partnerships between carriers and the likes of Spotify and Deezer is one way in which the mobile music market can help overcome the problem of piracy and achieve its full potential. In a new video interview with Mobile World Live, Geoff Taylor – CEO of the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) – cites the Telia/Spotify and Orange/Deezer deals in Sweden and France, respectively, as evidence that partnerships between digital music services and network operators can work.
