Standard Life Aberdeen wins 100 bln stg mandate dispute against Lloyds. LONDON, March 19 (Reuters) - Standard Life Aberdeen has won a legal battle to stop Lloyds Banking Group from terminating a 100 billion pounds ($132.75 billion) investment management contract three years early, in a move that could cost the bank hundreds of millions of pounds in additional fees. After a lengthy arbitration process, a tribunal has ruled that the bank was not entitled to give notice in February 2018 to terminate the 2014 investment management agreement, casting a pall over Lloyds' new partnership with BlackRock and a wealth management tie-up with Schroders. Lloyds had argued that an 11 billion pound merger between Standard Life and Aberdeen Asset Management in 2017 triggered the right to review Aberdeen's contract to manage its pension assets on behalf of its wealth and insurance businesses, because it saw Standard Life as a "material competitor" to both.
A report by the Danish privacy consulting firm Cookiebot says that 112 ad-tracking companies collect information about visitors to government and public sector websites in European Union countries, even though the websites are not ad-supported. Government websites are often built on the cheap and include all kinds of third-party components. So not even the governments of EU member states comply with the union’s General Data Protection Directive, which requires site administrators to make sure users consent to the collection of their data. If you visit a national health service website with questions about whether you are HIV positive, pregnant or sliding into alcoholism there’s a good chance you’re being watched in order to be targeted with ads. It has developed a technology to scan web pages for trackers, and it’s selling tools to ensure sites are GDPR-compliant. If you administer a site, Cookiebot wants you to worry about unauthorized trackers and potential large fines for GDPR noncompliance. But if privacy regulators decided to use a similar technology to check all sites for compliance, they’d be swamped and most violators would never be fined. Sure, Facebook has the resources to fight back against anti-tracking technology in browsers, engaging in a cops-and-robbers game with the likes of Apple, according to the Cookiebot report. And sure, ubiquitous Google is the most active user of trackers. But the tracking won’t stop if the activity of the giants is regulated. Nor will clearer rules for cookie consent, as proposed in the EU’s still-to-be-enacted ePrivacy Regulation, eliminate the constant surveillance; they’ll likely just make it harder to detect.
Netflix Inc. will not be part of Apple Inc.'s new streaming service, Chief Executive Reed Hastings said late Monday, Variety reported. Speaking at a press event in Los Angeles, Hastings confirmed what many had already suspected. "Apple is a great company," he said, according to Variety. Apple is expected to unveil its highly anticipated streaming service next week. While it will feature some original shows, it is expected to also bolster its offerings by selling subscriptions to some third-party streaming services, such as HBO and Showtime, much as Amazon.com Inc.'s Prime service does.
DETROIT (AP) — U.S. securities regulators countered Tesla CEO Elon Musk's contempt-of-court defense Monday night, writing in court papers that he brazenly disregarded a federal judge's order and that one of his arguments "borders on the ridiculous." The October securities fraud settlement stemmed from tweets by Musk in August about having the money to take Tesla private at $420 per share. But Musk didn't have the funding secured. The lawyers also accused the Securities and Exchange Commission of censorship and of violating Musk's First Amendment rights by imposing a prior restraint on his speech. But the SEC lawyers wrote that submitting statements for approval does not mean Musk is prohibited from speaking. Musk's lawyers also argued that the SEC's motion for contempt is an over-reach that exceeds its authority. But the SEC said enforcement of the order is up to the judge, who has broad powers to enforce court orders.

Spotlight Stories was initially launched as a partnership between Google and Motorola to create 360-degree videos for mobile devices, and eventually developed VR content for Google's Daydream VR headsets. The decision to close Spotlight Stories wasn't surprising, since Facebook(NASDAQ: FB) closed its own VR studio, Oculus Story Studio, nearly two years ago. But do these studio closures indicate that the VR market, once hailed as the next frontier for tech companies, is in trouble? Google's Cardboard and Samsung's Gear VR headsets brought VR content to more mobile devices at affordable prices, while Sony entertained console gamers with the PlayStation VR. For a while it seemed like the VR market would evolve into a mainstream one, and companies like Facebook, Google, and major film studios poured millions of dollars into the development of VR videos. The PSVR, Oculus Go, Oculus Rift, Gear VR, Vive, and Vive Focus were the six best-selling VR headsets in the world in 2018, in that order, according to SuperData. Yet none of those devices came close to surpassing one million shipments per quarter throughout the year.
The ongoing public battle between Tesla's chief executive and the SEC piles pressure on Musk, the public face of Tesla, who is struggling to make the company profitable after cutting the price of its Model 3 sedan to $35,000. "It is therefore stunning to learn that, at the time of filing of the instant motion, Musk had not sought pre-approval for a single one of the numerous tweets about Tesla he published in the months since the court-ordered pre-approval policy went into effect," the SEC said in the filing. The fraud settlement between Musk, Tesla and the SEC resolved a lawsuit brought by the regulator over claims Musk made on Twitter in August that he had "funding secured" to take Tesla private at $420 per share. The SEC called those tweets "false and misleading" and a go-private deal never materialized. As part of that settlement, Musk stepped down as the company's chairman and he and Tesla agreed to pay $20 million each in fines.
Electric-car maker Tesla(NASDAQ: TSLA) is asking workers to help find more volunteers to deliver 30,000 vehicles during the last two weeks of the quarter, according to Business Insider. The quarter-end push comes as the company has been ramping up production and deliveries of its Model 3 as Tesla begins selling the vehicle in more markets. A request for volunteers coincides with the company's aggressive efforts recently to cut costs as it aims to become sustainably profitable. But the high number of vehicles Tesla reportedly needs to deliver in a short period of time raises questions about whether the company will be able to pull it off. Building a network to support significantly higher volumes of deliveries has come with some challenges, particularly since Tesla is simultaneously trying to cut costs to boost profitability. As 2019 unfolds, investors should watch to see whether Tesla takes steps to spread out deliveries more evenly throughout its quarters, reducing its dependence on volunteers and intense quarter-end activity. Unless Tesla can add to its delivery team throughout the year, challenges may persist.
(Reuters) - A tweet about Tesla Inc production targets by Elon Musk was "a blatant violation" of a court order to get his written communications pre-approved, U.S. securities regulators told a judge on Monday, doubling down on the government's demand to find the Tesla CEO in contempt of a previous fraud settlement. The Securities and Exchange Commission wrote in a filing in federal court in Manhattan that Musk's Feb. 19 tweet to his more than 24 million Twitter followers claiming the electric vehicle-maker would build around 500,000 cars in 2019 contained or could have contained information material to Tesla or its shareholders. The ongoing public battle between Tesla's chief executive and the top U.S. securities regulator adds pressure on Musk, the public face of Tesla, who is struggling to make the company profitable after cutting the price of its Model 3 sedan to $35,000. The fraud settlement between Musk, Tesla and the SEC resolved a lawsuit brought by the regulator over claims Musk made on Twitter in August that he had "funding secured" to take Tesla private at $420 per share.
