The new service launched by Google is known as Music Onebox, with the idea being to allow Internet users in China to get free music legally.

Currently, over 99% of the music files distributed in China are considered to be pirated.

This new service will allow users to find music through the Google music search service, and then download it from the site Top100.cn, which has licensing agreements in place with over 100 music labels.

All of the music downloads are supported by advertising, allowing them to be streamed or downloaded for free.
