TechCrunch’s then-editor Michael Arrington zeroed in on the decision’s significance. “The outcome of the battle will affect far more than Facebook’s music strategy,” Arrington wrote. “[I]t will also signal if the company is at all serious about being a platform/operating system for the social graph, or if they just want to own everything of value on the Facebook platform”

Unclear they want to own EVERYTHING.

Not much else though. And now they own Instagram.
