Music giant was run by its lawyers, according to leaked tape
Executives at Universal Music Group have been recorded saying that 'the business has been controlled by lawyers for a long time' in a call released by entrepreneur Kim Dotcom, with whom the Group had been in litigation.
The recording is of a phone conversation between Mr Dotcom, founder of the now defunct file server Megaupload, and executives at Universal Music Group in 2012. They were discussing a potential deal with his company. Based in Santa Monica, California, Universal is the largest music group in the world and is a subsidiary of Paris-based media group Vivendi.
