AOL closes its MP3 search engine

AOL, which is merging with media giant TimeWarner, closed their MP3 search engine today. Search engine, launched one month ago, was located in WinAMP.com's site.
Analysts guess that AOL closed the feature not because of legal threats, but because of its merger -- they want to keep their music division alive as well.

Lycos has also made some major changes to their MP3 search engine in past months -- most notable feature is the fact that they try to supply first legal tracks and websites before user is "allowed" to get his/her hand into illegal MP3s..
