Google Launches MP3 Search In China

Google Top100cn_2
It’s certainly game on as Google takes on Baidu’s illegal mp3 search with legal links from its search results provided by local music service Top 100.cn for free streaming, free mp3 downloads and lyrics supported by advertising revenue, and paid Caller RingBack Tones via China Mobile – with rights being cleared by most major labels (with probably one major holdout), publishers and a number of domestic labels for mainly Chinese music…Google will be sharing advertising revenue – traffic being tracked via watermarking – with all content providers via Top 100.

  1. This is pretty interesting but not surprising in the least. I wonder what type of interesting offering Google will do for music in the US? Something I think that would be useful would be not only mp3 searches (with links to legal sites) but also lyric searches.
