Catherine Leung, GM of Music Entertainment at Baidu, will be leaving Baidu soon, reported by 163.com. Catherine used to be the General Manager of Universal Music, China, and joined Baidu to lead its digital entertainment department in 2008.  She has done a great job helping Baidu sort out the long-time licensing dispute between Baidu and the digital music publishers, and she’s also the lead of Baidu’s music service, Baidu Ting which was launched in May 2011.

And according to a friend from digital music industry, we’ve been told that Catherine’s next stop might be Amazon.

It was reported that Amazon recently signed licensing agreements with hundreds of music publishers and distributors, including Sony Music Entertainment, EMI Music, Vivendi SA’s Universal Music Group, and Warner Music Group. Yesterday, Amazon also unveiled its music matching service to rival Apple’s. Obviously, Amazon is really working hard on something in the digital music industry.
