Amazon already have agreements with the four major labels for their new music service
Amazon could be on track to make a great advertisement for a music service in the cloud, similar to iTunes and much improved over what they were offering for a while. According to CNET, the U.S. retail giant has closed a licensing deal with all the “big four” (Sony, Universal, EMI and Warner) to launch its new offering as it should and let go of limitations and barriers before.
The issue is no less striking because, with the approval of the record, the new service would radically change the paradigm of Amazon Cloud Drive , which allowed users to access and listen to your tunes from anywhere but it was they who had to upload files to the server from Amazon. This format not previously required licenses or Agreements with any label because it is assumed that users were up to the cloud songs and contents in general they had paid, basically, a cloud backup your media files.
However, the agreements say, and closed with the majors, could bring some changes to your Amazon Cloud Drive, and now I be a simile and bred iTunes. In fact, he even says the re-launch would be during the month of July in the U.S., later to appear in the European market. What about Latin America? As always, our continent is a sensitive issue in the case of digital stores, but hope is all that is lost. Like it or not, one way or another the four seals mentioned have extensive presence in the area.
For now, we should treat this information as futurology, but not much missing in July, a dismissal or confirmation should not delay in coming.
