2.) Beethoven used of his dominant market position to make an Austrian piano company sell a lot of bigger pianos (which were requested by Beethoven himself). He started composing on the bigger piano, and every pianist would have to buy a new piano to play Beethoven. Today this is a competition violation in Europe, Art. 102 TFEU.

3.) During WWII, Jazz music was banned in Japan, but the leading radio station would invite talented musicians to jam live late at night, when most of the Japanese were expected to be asleep and would not hear it. Target audience was American soldiers scattered in the Pacific Islands, which is why in between tracks government would play messages like “You’re sleeping in the mud, but who’s sleeping with your woman now?” with hopes to demoralize the troops. However, their messages had such strong accent and poor grammar, that the soldiers waited to hear them as much as the music because of how hilarious they were.
