In a letter, Icahn said the following: "Today we entered into an agreement with eBay whereby one of our representatives, Jonathan Christodoro, will join eBay’s board of directors and have the ability to transition to PayPal’s board once the spin-off occurs. eBay also agreed that PayPal’s charter documents will contain a number of corporate governance provisions that we suggested and which we believe will greatly enhance shareholder value at PayPal. We believe the actions of eBay’s board and management in crafting this agreement with us have marked a large step forward for corporate governance. The company reached out to us recently to discuss value enhancement generally, and our constructive conversations led to the mutual development of a governance structure going forward that we believe will better align the interests of shareholders, directors, management and other stakeholders."

12:13 EDTAMZNAmazon's Twitch unit to allow users to stream music
In a blog post Amazon.com's Twitch unit said it will allow users to stream music on its online gaming platform. The company said: "Today we’re announcing two important music initiatives: the Twitch Music Library and the beta Music category.The Twitch Music Library, is a library of songs pre-cleared for Twitch broadcasters to use live and with VODs. As you may recall, we implemented an audio recognition system last year out of respect for copyright holders and to protect both our broadcasters and our brand. We knew it was equally important to ensure broadcasters had music options. Thus, the Twitch Music Library was born to offer safe passage through the less-than-clear legal landscape when it comes to audio rights. The Twitch Music Library features more than 500 songs provided by established and burgeoning labels, including Mad Decent, Dim Mak, Spinnin’ Records, OWSLA, Monstercat, Fool’s Gold, and many more. We are also announcing an experiment with music content creators: our beta Music category. The Music category—listed among the game titles you can designate for a broadcast—is for musicians to use for creating, performing, and presenting original music." Reference Link
