YouTube to try again with new paid music service, aiming for March launch

Multiple past efforts by YouTube to take on the likes of Spotify and Apple Music have ended in failure, but the Google-owned company is clearly not one to walk away from a challenge.

It's going to be a crowded market.

There seem to only be two business models - let everybody listen to a lot, support it through advertising (Pandora); or charge a monthly fee, and let people listen to everything (Youtube Music, Apple Music, etc.)

Bottom line is, even both of those are based on the idea that, no, stop keeping your music as files you actually get to keep on your hard drive; no, simply stream it on demand from our servers - as long as you keep paying - or watching the ads.

If people don't have music files, they can't trade them, share them, upload them to others, pirate them, etc. Everybody pays! Or at least watches ads. And, obviously, the RIAA likes that.
