Google and other search engines have an advantage in knowing what people are searching for and how well it is monetized (through CPC ads, etc).
There has been talk about a Google Music service that allows you to buy and download music (similar to their Video service). The rumors seem to stem from the fact that there is a party being held by Google with 20 top Music Execs. The rumors prompted Google to reply, denying the rumor. It could be that they are “protesting too much” by replying…or it could be that they are planning something else…perhaps with Google Music Search.
How about selling tickets on there?
