I don't know what new MySpace Music brings to the Music On Demand service. Aren't websites like http://www.deezer.com/en already perfect, or almost, for that?

You'll probably find that although there are plenty of sites already providing an equal or better service, Myspace will try and keep they're users on their site.

By using their dominance as a social community leader to build partnerships with record labels such as Sony, and producing massive impact campaigns like we've seen, Myspace will be able to shout louder than the smaller players out there, and keep their users from straying elsewhere.
