Google and Amazon launched Music Locker Cloud Services without new Music Label deals.
Apple is long rumored to launch iTunes in the cloud. Such a service would make your iTunes playlists available on the go. Amazon and Google recently launched so called music locker services. Both companies did not arrange for new licensing as they basically just offer customers to upload their music library (a potentially very time consuming task) and stream it to mobile devices.

CNET reports now that Apple is apparently very close to sign cloud-licensing deals with EMI Music, Universal Music and Sony Music Entertainment.

Apple would need to offer something more than just storing music in the cloud to get me interesting using it.
