Apple Cloud Music License Deals with Labels in Place Soon: Report

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.

Apple is anticipated to launch a more comfortable iCloud music service. Apple could just sync your iTunes playlists and map the media files from the server to your iTunes cloud account. CNET reports now that Apple is apparently very close to sign cloud-licensing deals with EMI Music, Universal Music and Sony Music Entertainment.

Now the question is if and how much Apple will charge for the cloud based music service. I like music, but I still cope with the storage capacity my iPhone offers to bring the music I need with me on the road. Apple would need to offer something more than just storing music in the cloud to get me interesting using it.
