It looks like Amazon is already facing the ramifications of their barely one-day-old Cloud Player service. It has been reported that Amazon launched their cloud-based music service without obtaining the required licenses to run such a service. Obtaining these licenses have been the main hindrance to Amazon’s competitors’ cloud music services and Amazon choosing to ignore them allowed the company to beat them to the punch. While it was a brave move on their part, they’ll have to face the music now. It wasn’t mentioned which record labels were upset (presumably all of them), and what actions will be taken, but let’s hope it won’t lead to the discontinuation of this highly convenient media streaming service. How many of you have already started using Amazon Cloud Player?
