Industry agitator Wayne Rosso has lobbed a brickbat in Google’s direction by claiming that not only is its Google Music service not living up to expectations, but that it’s been losing customers since its launch in November.

It’s hard to believe that with an install base of over 200 million Android handsets they’re actually losing customers.” Rosso suggests that some label executives are even concerned that Google may “pull the plug” on its service, although the fact that Google Music had a dedicated section of the Android stand at Mobile World Congress this week makes us think that day isn’t coming in the near future.
