Apple set up licensing deals for music cloud

News: 25th May 2011 by Louise Dodgson under Music Publishing, Record Labels, Selling & Distributing Your Music

Since the launch of Amazon's and Google's music cloud offerings, rumours and reports are rife on the internet about the similar service which Apple has lined up. It would seem that Apple have taken a slightly different approach and has struck licensing deals with Warner and EMI, and Sony and Universal are apparently not too far behind. Holding back on the launch could actually do Apple wonders, as Amazon and Google have been slated for avoiding consulting record labels on their music services. When we can expect the unveiling of Apple's music cloud locker is still unsure, though some say that it is likely it will launch at their annual event in June. Looks like we'll have to wait & see...
