"Search engines could become the portals to online music, rather than the stores themselves. No doubt Yahoo�s search engine will prioritize Yahoo services, as will MSN�s and others. But what if you could search the entire net, not just the approved stores? That may not be the best scenario for major labels, but the upcoming Yahoo digital music search engine will likely deliver a wide results set. Meanwhile, the possibility of a Google play is enticing, with the dominant search engine gradually expanding into multimedia."
Great news for independent music publishers!
