Yahoo is debuting its popular streaming music service “Launch” in Europe, its first crack at the region’s burgeoning online music market. Yahoo is also considering launching downloads in the U.S. and abroad in the future.
In UK, Launch will likely team up with music site Dotmusic, which is owned by BT Group, as part of its newly struck alliance to bring entertainment content to BT OpenWorld broadband subscribers.
