This Week’s Subscription News: Starbucks, Subscriptions and SaaS
Featuring Google, Wall Street Journal, FireEye, Equifax and YouTube
In this week’s subscription news, Google finally drops its ‘first click free’ policy in an attempt to appease publishers, the Wall Street Journal stops publishing Asian and European Print editions, and Pandora makes a promising bet on video ads. Also this week, we’re reading subscription stories about Oracle’s feature-packed SaaS updates, how FireEye could benefit from the ghastly Equifax data breach, and YouTube’s new requirement that creators must enable their channel for monetization through their Partner Program to include external links, essentially putting a wall between creators and Patreon, a YouTube competitor.
