It looks like Google is getting into the music game: According to TechCrunch, Google will be partnering with iLike and Lala to create a new music service. This is coming after iLike was purchased by MySpace. This partnership is important because MySpace has the full streaming rights with all major music labels already, unlike LaLa, who only has the ability to stream a song once to a user before charging to hear the song.

The Google music service will allow for streaming music as well as the ability to buy songs for downloading. This could be the beginning of a Google-Apple music war.
