...so Google would own the rights to every song and decide where it can and can't go to? What would the labels even do at that point?

Plus, if Google owns it all and is selling it themselves, would they even allow it on iTunes, Amazon, and the like. That's just scary to think about.

Also, that would mean that all of the rights for all of the music at a label costs the same as Instagram. That's pretty fucked.

I'd assume the label would still operate the same way and handle the day-to-day operations of actually being a record label, essentially feeding new "artists" and music into the Google machine, as everything created would then be owned by Google.

But if Google owns all the rights to the songs, how would the labels be making any money? All profits would go to Google.
