Google launched their new music service today amid an uproar from music labels: Music Beta by Google What I don’t get is, why do Google/Amazon/Apple need the approval of the music industry for a service to store files. If I buy my music it is my legitimately they are mine right? Then what business is it where I store them. If want to sign up for a service that allows me to use those files across devices and remotely, that’s my business.
The music industry is so scared of any kind of innovation. Every time someone develops a new way to listen to music they start lawyering up to fight the innovation.
Hey music labels, about this. Hire some innovative people to develop services like Google, Amazon and Apple, then you can get a piece of the pie too. Haven’t you learned yet? Innovate or die!
