COMMENTARY: If the tech works smoothly – and integration into tens of thousands of custom designed sites is no easy task – then MySpace's social music experience has at least the potential to add significantly to music sales, as well as, greatly strengthen Amazon's claim as "the" iTunes alternative.
It's also clear that MySpace is vastly improving its tools that lead to music discovery. But it remains to be seen if young fans will ever view MySpace as a place to actually pay for music – if they ever learn to pay music at all.
