Two years after Google Inc. began a big push in China, Baidu.com Inc. continues to dominate the country's Internet search market, thanks in significant part to a controversial and legally risky offering: searches for free, unlicensed music downloads.
Now, Google is preparing a counterstrike, according to people close to the situation. The U.S. search giant is in the late planning stages of a joint venture with a Chinese online music company that would permit it to provide free -- licensed -- music downloads in China.
I just have a question, what music? - Chinese or English. I guess the young Chinese generation is fond of English Music, Although I see most of my Chinese colleagues in the University only listening Chinese music :-).
