Social music discovery service iLike and digital music distribution service TuneCore kicked off a joint effort to help independent artists make money and get discovered effectively.
This unique alliance leverages TuneCoreâ€™s digital distribution model and iLikeâ€™s music promotion and discovery services to give independent artists a turnkey solution to distribute, promote and sell their music.
By submitting their music via TuneCore, independent or established musicians can sell their music in all the major online stores and leading subscription services, including: iTunes; Amazon mp3; and through Rhapsody, on Yahoo, MTV and iLike.
After using TuneCore to easily and quickly distribute their music to Rhapsody, artists will earn royalties when their music is streamed not only on iLike.com but also on iLikeâ€™s unrivaled music syndication network, which provides music on FacebookÂ®, hi5, Orkut, Bebo, iLikeâ€™s third-party developer platform and other leading channels across the web.
Artists can sign up for a free account at TuneCore.

This is an interesting more, but I still dont see how it is big news. http://routenote.com has been developing these music distribution partners in recent months also.

I agree Steven. In the same way, it does not mean that just because that there is another service going on already does not mean that one cannot be on the news also. Google became news despite having Yahoo around :)
