Turntable.fm inks deal with the four major U.S. recording labels
Unsatisfied by their EMI deal, Turntable.fm founders Billy Chasen and Seth Goldstein announced that the site now has licensing deals with Warner Music Group, Sony BMG, and Universal Music Group during their SXSW panel on Tuesday. During “Turntable.FM: The Future of Music is Social”, Goldstein heaped praise on the label negotiations, saying, “our model is unique - we’re not a radio service, not an on-demand service.

They gave us a lot of time and attention.” What do all of our music afficionados think though? Are social sites like Turntable really the future of music? source
