Amazon: no extra licenses for Cloud Player

An article on says the new Amazon application "Cloud Player" may begin to cause some legal headaches for the company.

Cloud Player is an app that allows customers to upload their digital music files so they can play music from an internet browser. This gives the customer the ability to access their music library from any web device.

The big issue for Amazon is now the music industry's claims that the player needs a license to operate. Amazon's spokesperson seems unfazed by the claim and says the license is not needed since the music would have already been given a license when it was originally purchased by the customer.

At this time, it is unsure if the record companies will seek legal action.
