Ad supported business model from Last.FM

Today Last.FM announced an advertising supported model.

Seemingly this is the best place for music to go. Streaming audio in realtime (in particular based on playlists) is a growing trend - the likes of Spotify, Deezer, Seeqpod etc. have been popping up at a remarkable rate.

The question now lies on these sites can build a business model as they don't host any of the data, its all taken from "sweeping" the internet. Can they create a dialogue with the labels ?
