Editor’s note: We used to have an industry news roundup every Friday on this blog; however, it shuffled off, took a nap (because they’re good for you), had a costume change, and reemerged as “News You May Have Missed.”
These are selected news articles that showed up in our inboxes on Monday morning that we want to pass along to you.
