    Default Google Music Service to Start - Gtunes?

    Just got feeds about Google to enter the music download subscription service from TechCrunch and Search Engine Land. Another revenue avenue for Google I guess, and maybe increased competition against iTunes...

    Well good question - I don't know; But Google tend to share their services world wide. But might depend on their music providers and their USA music regulations...

    They definitely need a world wide circuit. All these restrictions suck big time.

    Well most people would initially use Google to look for free MP3's from torrents, p2p sites, and other free avenues. I guess Google could easily capitalize on that, by providing a Google music subscription search. They should have the potential (and cash at hand) to become a major music empire online; Much like their other avenues which have become heavily used/popular (e.g. Adwords, Adsense, Google Docs, Gmail, Analytics, Maps, and ...Search)

    After reading the links, I don't think iTunes or Amazon need to worry.
