Yahoo buys WebJay

Yahoo is boosting its music holdings. The search giant has purchased WebJay, a Web site that lets people publish music playlists on the Internet. No details of the deal were disclosed.

A posting on the Yahoo Music Blog praised WebJay, its technology, and its founder Lucas Gonze.

"WebJay is visionary and fantastic, but we are also keenly interested in Lucas the individual. He's contributed a lot of great work to standards around music on the Internet, and has always pushed forward a refreshing perspective of openness and progress without turning a blind eye to infringement or the rights of copyright holders (likely because he's a musician himself)."
