I have previously written about Radionomy taking over Winamp. Now the news is official Radionomy do now indeed own Winamp and Shoutcast.
The deal is thought to be worth between $5 million and $10 million, with AOL taking a 12% stake of Radionomy in the process. When you consider AOL initially paid around $80 million for Winamp in the first place. Radionomy seem to have got themselves a bargain with this purchase.
The offical blurb from Radionomy is Here
What does this mean for the future of both Winamp and Shoutcast? I guess we will have to wait and see. If they decide to start sticking adverts into peoples shoutcast streams It will only mean more people using icecast.
