Mark Cuban asks some questions about Apple, Google, YouTube and the music labels: Billioniare blogger Mark Cuban has been blazing the ‘osphere recently with proclamations of how crazy certain deals are. I’m perceiving he’s mellowing a bit now, since with this post about Apple, he puts his opinions in the form of questions rather than declarations.
So we could have an interesting year of watching Apple to see if this change in where music is discovered impacts their competitive situation. Watching the labels to see how much they can get paid for licensing their catalogues. Will it be 15mm plus ad share per year or get sued? What will other content providers who didnt get their 15mm think Will they sue to prove a point that you cant leave them out? Will Google just write checks or give stock to the entire universe?
