The offer on the table was for Canonical to _take_ 75% of the revenue from the Amazon storefront they didn't build in an application they don't help develop.
They don't develop neither build that application - they distribute it. That Banshee application wouldn't generate any revenue if it would just languish in source code form on some server.
Of course, I have no idea how big is the Ubuntu users' share in all Banshee installations (probably nobody has exact figures), so maybe that 75% is not that much or way too much. The average gain in some retail business could be around 50%, so 75% seems to be a little too much, but they probably know what they are doing...
