I am interested to see how this will work out -- particularly as listeners match up music that they downloaded ILLEGALLY with music on the cloud and then through streaming and re-downloading, the artists will get paid.


Imagine the up sell opportunity... Complete My Album with songs people took illegally? Past Buyer mailings to people who stole the last record? The amount of data Itunes will control from this and (hopefully) will leverage to sell more music is a huge opportunity for artists and labels alike.


I see this as sort of a " Path to Citizenship " . You can keep all the stuff you bootlegged & we'll make you legal , for $24.99 a yr
It's sort of payback to the labels and publishers for all they have " lost "

Did someone say "amnesty"? ;)


Artists getting paid?? LOL!

Awesome post.


I wonder how good this 'scanning' technology is going to be. Is Apple going to have all of my obscure mashups and mislabeled/misspelled songs readily available too? This doesn't seem much more convenient then just tossing all of your music onto Google Music. If I have my iPod I don't need the cloud, if not and I want music I just need something that has a browser. Why pay 25$ a year?
