CPCC Seeks No Levy for Cloud Services

The Canadian Private Copying Collective will not be seeking levies for cloud services according to a press release issued on July 21st, 2011.

“The CPCC views these services, and specifically the iMatch offering, as a matter of licensing between the right holders and the cloud service providers, not one of private copying”

Best Buy Music Cloud Online

Best Buy‘s Musiccloud service is now online in the states. The cloud service is provided by Catch Media‘s Play Anywhere system, which is compatible with Apple, Blackberry and Android devices.

I have yet to find information related to a Canadian service but the terms and conditions of this service don’t include limitations in regards to use by American residents. I will change this information if I recieve confirmation that Canadians are ineligible for the service.

More Clouds In Forecast

Another online music retailer has decided to create a Cloud service.

American subscription service eMusic are hoping to launch their own Cloud service in the fall or winter.

This company had just recently secured the rights to EMI‘s older catalog, enabling members access to EMI recordings that are over 12 months old.
