The MusicBrainz API, together with the LinkedBrainz approach exposing the dataset as Linked Data, were used as motivation for Linked Services in a tutorial at the ESWC. Linked Open Services, specifically, are the combination of Linked Data principles with the entire RESTful interface increasingly used in the provision of Web-based APIs.

Linked Services form an interesting possibility for the future continuance of LinkedBrainz work, as they provide the possibility to address the submission, update and review of data (an important part of the success of the MusicBrainz datasets, as well as others such as Geonames) using the same Semantic Web technologies as Linked Data.
