Universal to demand royalty deal with Apple?

Posted on Thursday, Nov 30 2006 @ 00:21 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Universal made an agreement to receive a royalty fee for every Microsoft Zune sold in retail stores. This week Universal may try to get a similar deal from Apple.
"It would be a nice idea. We have a negotiation coming up not too far. I don't see why we wouldn't do that... but maybe not in the same way," he told the Reuters Media Summit, when asked if Universal would negotiate a royalty fee for the iPod that would be similar to Microsoft's Zune.
