    Bidu "Expects to Lose half of its Music Users-LINK

    http://thenextweb.com/asia/2011/04/06/baidu-to-launch-revamped-genuine-mp3-music-platform-expects-to-lose-half-of-its-users/
    --
    While the title seems ominous- this is an amazing powerful move for Bidu.
    Baidu and China have to shed its "piracy" stigma.
    They are like us 12 years ago- we all used napster-
    then cleaned up-- then itunes etc.

    If we do indeed lose to other pirate sites in China?
    Watch the power of the china goverment and their "gem" Baidu.
    They will be CRUSHED- SHUT DOWN.

    if we take a hit?? it will be like the Phoneix Next Trasnsition.
    it ws announced bidu wass switching over- initial loss of rev???
    we sold off-
    then DOUBLED.

    this move had to come- Baidu is taking the lead on the inevitable and IMO

    THIS IS GOING TO BE A MONSTER- THE COMPANIES INVOLVED WILL OFFSET THE LICENSING FEES
    BAIDU WILL FURTHER STRENGHTEN AND FORGE NEW LEGIT RELATIONSHIPS
    WITH SONY ETC.

    • again-
      The world will FLOCK to baidu- first true LEGIT music and books.
      3-4 million new eyes per day.
      and? The goverment will crush all other pirate companies.

      and? 2-3 weeks ago Baidu signed deal to offer merchants payments- watch how this develops.

      im surprised we arent selling off- like we did when we announced the phoenix nest transition---
      then doubled

      Baidu said that it can offer EMI content already through an existing licensing agreement with the Music Copyright Society of China.


      It is claimed that Baidu is currently in licensing talks with the other majors.

    • 10 yrs from now, not too many people will remember Bidu.. changing from piracy websites to legal binding websites, Bidu will lose more than 90% of its users, not half as predicted.. Today Bidu has to shut down ecommerce site due to lack of traffic.. Chinese consumers won't pay full prices for music, software applications, movies , video..they have been downloading for free for many years, no way they're going to pay for anything.. another websites will pop up and they will use it as long as no law preventing them from free downloading..US investors are funding these "piracy" behavior, and turn around complaining about Chinese's piracy policy...GREED vs. STUPIDITY
