Yahoo! China Shutting Down Music Service

Yahoo! China has announced that they are shutting down their Music website on January 20th.  They posted a statement in Chinese that was translated to “Thank you for your continued support of Yahoo services. Due to an adjustment in our product strategy, we have decided to take Yahoo Music offline on January 20, 2013, when the service will no longer be available.”

Yahoo! is not the only high-tech search company that is scaling back services in China.  Last week Google shut down Google Shopping in China and two months ago they shut down Music Search there too.
