I know it's been possible to go to youtube and find songs for years, but now this?

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Muse

They put tracks and albums off to the side? Clicking an album takes you to a playlist, and you've basically got the music there for free, for any number of artists. Isn't this going to backfire hard, or is this perfectly okay?

There's an android app too I hadn't noticed, youtube music or something. Like a lesser version of youtube so far, seemingly, devoted to providing the videos of music as just music. Unless you want the video too, in which case it's apparently just lesser youtube like I said.

This all seems to be crossing a line to me, but I wouldn't really know. I feel like the guys at google wouldn't do this if it was going to create some sort of fiasco, but...I really don't know lol.

This really isn't any different than what other online music services are doing.

Keep in mind that Google owns YouTube and has a Play Music service. They've been integrating YouTube as part of the Play Music service for a while.

Alternatively - Google Music.
