Corbidge comments... 
B2B publishers might often be shaded by the major consumer brands in public consciousness, but they have a vast amount to teach their consumer-focused brethren.

Facebook's Canadian brinkmanship
As it was in Australia, so it is in Canada: Facebook is threatening to suspend services in Canada if it is forced to make payments to Canadian publishers for content. We can foresee inherent problems in such content compensation laws reinforcing the media status quo unfairly. That, however, is not why Facebook is behaving the way it is.

Twitter is a publisher too
As the latest internal data shows Twitter losing its most active users, the social platform's potential new owner Elon Musk appears to reveal his opinion that it is in fact a publisher. When will the duck test be properly applied to all such platforms that, well, publish? Still, he does imply that local news will get some attention under his watch. He promises many things of course.

Big pile of streaming truth
Apple Music pays three times more than Spotify to original artists. Spotify is a bigger platform and has more features. Successful musician L.Dre explains earning a living online from his point of view.

Sema-forthright views
Innovation in US news publishing is an undeniable trend, with new entrants gaining ground even as established brands also thrive. The same cannot be said so resolutely about the eastern side of the Atlantic, and why is a good question. Here's a pretty candid interview with Semafor co-founder Ben Smith. We only share it because they need the publicity...
