Google to buy Napster?

Google to buy Napster?

CNET News is reporting that Napster has been in talks with Google, with the hopes of forming an alliance and possibly even more. Rumor has it that Napster's been suffering in a market that includes more than 300 online music sellers, including the successful iTunes Music Store. If Napster is indeed hurting, a Google acquisition might be the boost it needs, since the Napster brand name is still powerful. Google, which recently launched a video store and is getting its wealthy hands into everything, should benefit in an online music world that, while intensely competitive, is still in its early stages of development.
