Google Cloud Music Service

Monday afternoon in a post by the New York Post, Google is in New York trying to rush a licensing deal through with the Harry Fox Ageny.  Why would Google be striking a deal with one of the largest digital music agencies that licenses mechanical and digital rights for thousands of publishers?  Is Google Cloud Music service going to be available in the near future?

Last month, CNET reported that Google could launch a music service this fall. Google declined to comment for this story. Both Apple and Google have both discussed building cloud services for both film and music.  This has been confirmed by

numerous sources at the major movie studios and record labels. Each company has discussed hosting their users’ media on their own cloud servers. Think about it? Users could access their movies, music, and e-books from all different types of devices.  Wouldn’t it be nice if you could access everything from your iPhone or Blackberry?  Google cloud servers would stream this to your mobile device at a small monthly cost.

At this point, Google appears further along in launching a cloud service than Apple, sources said.

To reach an agreement on cloud music will not be easy. The labels have yet to license music rights for the kind of offerings that Google and Apple are said to be working on. “There’s no template,” said one music source. “They’re going to be starting from scratch and that’s not easy.” What that means is that if negotiations go poorly, they could conceivably delay the launch offering until next year.
