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?

I'm "disgusted" with the content providers

The current business model of the content industy and content providers is an anachronism. Unfortunately, It seems that they're creeping their way into danish litigation as well with the worn-out argument that piracy/file sharing is bad. Sigh, the hypocracy of big content and narrowminded stupidity of those who believe that law enforcement is the solution is sometimes unbearable.
