Amazon take on Apple with Cloud Player
News: 1st April 2011 by Louise Dodgson under Selling & Distributing Your Music
Amazon have unveiled their plans to release a cloud-based music locker for users to upload their music and stream via various devices such as computers and smart phones. Apple and Google both have very similar plans in the pipeline but it seems Amazon has pipped them to the post in this instance.
This 'music cloud' service will of course raise issues with regards to copyright, although Amazon seem adamant that they do not require licenses for this service. Sounds like this may be a new digital challenge for the music industry to negotiate.
