Google Music Search

October 30, 2009

I was intrigued to read about Google introducing a new search feature for music. Here’s the Google blog post and an article from the Guardian.

And I was struck by the contrast between this and the current disagreements between government and the ISPs about illegal file sharing.

While they argue one of the world’s most powerful media companies introduces something that will push music lovers online to legal sources of music. And since it’s Google it will probably work.

It felt like a slightly chilling moment as well. Google really are very powerful and appear to know exactly what they are doing.

OK so it’s not in the UK yet. But sometimes it feels like the rest of us should just pack up and go home.
