$300 million. That's what Universal Music paid for Dylan's catalog and what Amazon offered for Wondery.
From the Wall Street Journal: Amazon in Talks to Buy Podcast Maker Wondery. Closely held Wondery is the last large, independent podcaster on the market—and could present the final opportunity for a major tech or media giant to buy its way into the exploding field.
From the New York Times: Bob Dylan Sells His Songwriting Catalog in Blockbuster Deal. Universal Music purchased his entire songwriting catalog of more than 600 songs in what may be the biggest acquisition ever of a single act’s publishing rights.
Apple angle: The company sold an average of $377 million worth of iPhones per day in fiscal 2020.
My take: Something's out of whack.
