iLike No Longer Means I Listen (in full)

In yet another unfortunate string of recent blows to free music streaming sites (see recent news/rumors on Imeem, Playlist, Seeqpod,, et al). It looks like iLike, who had recently struck a deal with Rhapsody to power free full-track streaming of content from their site, is no longer doing so.

I'm not sure what the terms of the deal between the two where, but according to the Rolling Stone article linked above, it sounds like iLike was covering the streaming royalties on the 25 free streams a month the deal enabled and was hoping to make that back in bounties from subscriptions to Rhapsody they drove?
