The EC will decide by April 2 whether to allow a consortium that includes Sony (SNE) and Blackstone (BX) to buy EMI's music publishing ops. The EC is also deliberating on Universal's (VIVHY.PK) purchase of EMI's recorded music unit and is looking at whether the likes of Apple and others could prevent labels from co-ordinating prices.
