Seattle start up, iLike, reportedly is in negotiations with the major labels to launch its own music download service, reports CNET. Currently, iLike refers users to iTunes and other digital retailers to download music. The story did not speculate on how the iLike store would be offered. In a May interview with Billboard, iLike CEO Ali Partovi said he was open to striking content deals of his own after the full-song streaming deal with Rhapsody ended. “We’re always looking at what the options are to improve our service,” he said. “There isn’t anything being done imminently on that, but I think the licensing landscape has evolved a lot, and it continues to evolve. If and when a deal is available that can offer the best experience to our users at reasonable costs to us, we’ll always be interested.”
