Re: Monopoly?
@dave -- everyone is in the content business these days. Amazon, Facebook and now Apple (?) Its a path for growth, and if they can raid the web for producers, well, it can't be that hard...Ironically all the old producers of content, like Time magazine, are going away. Reinventing the wheel?

Re: Monopoly?
Apple wants to continue to grow, and because of this it is going to look at doing things in the content space. I'm not sure this is really their forte, as they have been better stewards for distribution of content rather than owning it. 

Yet I would not be at all surprised if Apple does buy Big Machine. Hopefully they will know what to do with it by maximizing the label's exposure.

Apple will need to be very careful if it does go down the content creaiton route. It would very easy for it to be seen as anti-competitive if it were found to be promoting content from Big Machine over that produced by artists on other labels.

Still, I wonder if Apple's ship has somewhat sailed when it comes to music. People definitely don't have the same view of it as the world's biggest music hub like it was a decade ago.
