Google So, Google has been working on setting up an internet music service for a while now, and we even know some of the details about what Google wants it to look like. Sadly, however, rumour has it the negotiations with the music industry have been so frustrating, Google is contemplating abandoning the entire project altogether. This has led some to wonder - why doesn't Google, or a consortium of technology companies, just buy the music industry outright?

F*** the "big labels". Make your own label, attract the artists to you. Bands get most of their money from concerts so they are interested in being promoted so people would buy tickets. And google can promote bands. And integrate jamendo in whatever music plans you have. Promote new artists, i'm sick of lady gaga and other crap promoted by the "big labels"
