Back in May, Google launched its cloud service Music Beta by Google with virtually no licensing deals. Now, a few weeks prior to the official launch of its online music store that intends to take on Apple and Amazon, the company’s negotiations with major labels are not completed yet. Google’s proposed “smart locker system,” an online storage system to let users link their music to a central database, left an impression on the music industry that the company was not acting efficiently in the fight to combat piracy.

Since Apple is moving forward with its its own cloud service, iTunes Match, to be released in late October, it could imply that Google is urged to act quickly with Music Beta by Google.
