Google To Remove Any Illegal / Unauthorized / Copyright-Infringing Music From Its Cloud

A google exec said during the Google IO keynote that their Google Music service will not tolerate copyright infringement saying: "We will respond to requests by rights holders who feel their rights have been violated."
For end users, that could mean that album/song leaks and pirated music won't be tolerated. And though it seems like it will be difficult to distinguish what's pirated and what's not, Google could use the same tech it uses on YouTube to take stuff down that's copyrighted.
Would that kill Google Music's appeal? How much more different is it than any other service?
