Jean-Bernard Levy, chairman of Universal Music Group parent company Vivendi, talked up his baby at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia conference yesterday, saying that “there is no limit to what Universal Music can do” and calling UMG “the only stable company in the [music] industry,” thanks in large part to the machinations of Doug “The Thug” Morris and his tireless army of lawyers. What does this mean for music consumers in the long run, aside from more billable hours for UMG’s in-house counsel? Well, I’m hoping for the release of that long-awaited Universal Music Group “crazy calls” CD. Hey, maybe they could actually turn it into a ringle! That’s the definition of “no limit” right there, isn’t it?
