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?

So Google could do what the RIAA can't - completely own the distribution model, from creation to distribution to even whether or not you're able to find it for sale in the first place?

Sounds A-OK to me.
