Google: free, legal music downloads in China (huh?)

Let me get this right: the four majors have agreed to their precious fulltrack content being distributed for free without any DRM? In China, of all places?

Whatever happened to "music isn't free", blah blah blah? Of course, Google must have signed a few fat checks, but still... I don't think anything of this scale has happened so far: over 300k songs from day 1, to be increased to over 1 million.

Now, please let's hear the majors explain why the rest of the world should keep paying for the same content.

Here's the article from Wired.
