AOL hasn’t been a major player in the digital music world for some time, despite claiming 30m visitors for its AOL Music site.

We see some big gaps in the music space and we’ve been out talking to partners about it and I don’t know whether or not we’ll invest in it, but from a clarity of opportunity standpoint there’s two or three things we see actually that are probably meaningful but I don’t know what we are going to do.” He went on to note that music is relevant to AOL’s four core verticals: content, video, advertising and commerce.
