Google set to woo music industry

According to a report from the Digital Hollywood trade show, held this year at the Lowes Hotel in Santa Monica, California, Google has invited 20 of the top executives in the music industry to a special conference.

The agenda for the roundtable discussion is not publicly known, but many expect that it relates to Google's possible entrance into the digital music download industry. Already, Google has entered the paid digital content realm with their Google Video service, which launched in January. Google Video allows users to download clips by content providers such as CBS, the NBA, Classic Media, and Sony BMG. Some clips are provided for free, others offer only a low-resolution preview and require payment to download a high-res version. Google set to woo music industry
