Apple Inks Cloud-Music Deals
Whether Apple's cloud music service will be iCloud, iTunes or something different altogether, Apple is getting its ducks in a row to ensure that it has major record labels on board (and in the cloud). CNET reported this week that Apple has signed a cloud-music licensing agreement with EMI Music and is on the cusp of inking similar deals with Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment. Meanwhile, Warner Music group had a deal in place already.
Apple is expected to lock down the major labels in time for WWDC 2011, meaning it will likely have a big cloud music announcement up its sleeve.
