Reports today say TimeWarner will rid itself of the their vast music operations to an investment group lead by former Seagram’s CEO, Edgar Bronfman for 2.6 billion (U.S.) dollars. The Bronfman investment group beat out a bid from EMI (currently the 3rd largest music company) and comes as Sony Music and BMG have just entered into a musical merger. This deal has been predicted for weeks and rids TimeWarner of an unprofitable asset which should help them show a short to mid-term profit – a move designed to please Wall Street. Some sources online say EMI is now a takeover target but no possible suitors were mentioned. Plans for what Bronfman and his investment team intend to do with WEA have not been made public but with a rich back catalog of artists and many viable current artists, WEA could return to profitability.

Bose Corporation has filed suit in the United States Patent and Trademark Office to cancel CEDIA’s four federal trademark registrations for its mark “Electronic Lifestyles®.” CEDIA began using “Electronic Lifestyles” in 1995 in connection with the association’s non-profit activities. In 1998 and 1999, CEDIA received four federal trademark registrations for “Electronic Lifestyles.” Bose, which is a CEDIA member, markets a line of loudspeakers known as “Lifestyle®.” In its suit, Bose claims that CEDIA’s “Electronic Lifestyles” trademark so resembles Bose’s “Lifestyle” trademark as to cause confusion. CEDIA denies that confusion exists or is likely, and CEDIA is defending the proceeding vigorously.
