Hunter's Mid Week Media Round Up

Our mid week round up of media related stories that you really ought to know about.   Kylie v Kylie  One has sold 80m albums worldwide and toured the world on 15 occasions and made gold hot pants a thing of beauty.  The other caused a craze which saw teenage girls disfigure their lips by trying  to enlarge them in a DIY frenzy. Screen Shot 2016-03-02 at 13.08.08 But the two Kylies are in a current legal battle over trademark of their shared first name. Jenner applied for trademark protection in August. Minogue filed an opposition claiming such protection last week would cause confusion among consumers with her and "the secondary reality-television personality" and would ultimately "dilute her brand". Jenner's 80 million social media followers may beg to differ but we think it's round one to the Melbourne pocket rocket.   Facebook v Periscope  You may have noticed lots of wannabe vloggers & presenters streaming themselves all over your Facebook  newsfeed. That's because Facebook have changed their algorithms to prioritise Live video streams above all other content. Twitter has become the go to platform for immediate information and interaction around live events, so now it looks like Facebook wants a piece of that lucrative pie with what's essentially a live broadcast service, which will rival Twitters Periscope.   3D printing v Mass production is it the end of the good old fashioned production line as we know it. Will workers be replaced by robotic "printers"? We still don't really understand how this 3D printing lark is even possible- it blows our minds but some people who are in the know- think we could be on the verge of an industrial revolution of sorts.

Lena has since apologised but the outcome of this particular spat means that everyone's a winner: Lena looks better than she originally thought and the magazine got tonnes of free publicity. We love a happy ending.
