the idea
The idea
  • Digital retailers lack the ressources to acquire content from and deal with hundreds of independent labels
  • Independent labels lack the know-how and ressources to keep up with new products and business models and liaise with hundreds of digital retailers
  • Zebralution is the missing link
    • we aggregate content from numerous independent labels and provide it to even more digital retailers
    • by pooling content from dozens of labels, we become as strong as a major company, but can still remain more flexible

to do list for the industry
To-do list for the industry
  • Don´t overdo phone customization
    • Customers will be frustrated when useful features are disabled
  • Self-regulate where necessary
    • Limitation of DR-TV and code of conduct for subscriptions are good examples
  • Get DRM right
    • It should enable new services, not restrict fair use
  • Introduce real PC inter-operability
    • Internet and mobile sector merge, so must technologies
  • Tailor offering to clearly defined target groups
    • Not every senior citizen wants 60 GB memory and 10 free downloads bundled into his plan
  • Offer realistic air-time pre-products to wholesale customers
    • Independent players might be need to make next gen services mainstream
  • Accept different strategies for different companies
    • Not everyone must follow every industry trend
