Ever since Apple acquired online music streaming service, Lala, there have been speculations over a cloud-based iTunes service in the offing. These developments having occurred concurrently with the launch of the iPad, users had expected the streaming service to be launched along with the iPad.
It now appears that the launch may take some more time. According to a report on CNET, Apple’s streaming music service is not expected to arrive anytime before July. One of the primary reasons behind the delay is rumored to be the delays in securing copyrights and licenses from the studios. You may recall that Lala’s licensing rights ceased its validity ever since it was acquired by Apple.[CNET via Apple Insider]
