Peer-to-peer camera rental startup KitSplit raises $2.1M

KitSplit, which operates a peer-to-peer marketplace for creative equipment, is announcing that it’s raised $2.1 million in seed funding. The equipment available for rental can include cameras, lights and lenses, but also VR gear and drones. Renters get access to this equipment for a lower price (CEO Lisbeth Kaufman estimated said KitSplit usually costs 30 to 50 percent less than traditional rentals), while the equipment owners get to make some extra money from equipment when they’re not using it. I first wrote about KitSplit in 2016, and President Kristina Budelis (a former video producer for The New Yorker) said that since then, the service has grown from 5,000 to 30,000 members. It’s also acquired one of its competitors, CameraLends. Customers include NBC, Vox and National Geographic. Ac...

The Atlantic says it will hire up to 100 new staffers

It’s a gloomy time in media, with frequent announcements of layoffs and shutdowns (it even happened today). That’s why it seems remarkable for an established publication to announce ambitious plans for newsroom expansion. The publication in question is The Atlantic, the magazine in which Laurene Powell Jobs’ Emerson Collective bought a majority stake last year. The magazine announced today that it will be adding “as many as 100 new staffers” over the next year. That would increase The Atlantic’s headcount by 30 percent, and half of those additions are supposed to be on the editorial side. The company also says it will be forming a “Talent Lab” to find diverse writers, some of whom might join full-time, while others become occasional contributors. In a memo to staff, Bob Cohn, president of ...

Facebook inks music licensing deal with ICE covering 160 territories, 290K rightsholders on FB, Insta, Oculus and Messenger

Facebook today took its latest step towards making good on paying out royalties to music rightsholders around tracks that are used across its multiple platforms and networks. The company has signed a deal with ICE Services — a licensing group and copyright database of some 31 million works that represents PRS in the UK, STIM in Sweden and GEMA in Germany — to provide music licensing and royalty collection for works and artists represented by the group, when their music is used on Facebook, Instagram, Oculus and Messenger. WhatsApp is not included because “We understand that WhatsApp is currently used as a pure communication tool akin to private email / messaging,” a spokesperson for ICE told TechCrunch. “This will be kept under review.” The deal is significant because, as ICE describes it,...
