Myspace To Sell Artists' Songs Online
According to Yahoo News, Myspace have announced that they will be moving into the digital music business by selling songs from the nearly 3 million registered unsigned bands. Myspace is the latest company to take on Apple's iTunes, but unlike other rivals, it already boasts 106 million users.
MySpace co-founder Chris DeWolfe said before the end of 2006 they will offer independent bands that have not signed with a record label a chance to sell their music on the site. MySpace says it has nearly 3 million bands showcasing their music.
Songs can be sold on the bands' MySpace pages and on fan pages, in non-copyright-protected MP3 digital file format, which works on most digital players including Apple's market-dominating iPod.
The bands will decide how much to charge per song after including MySpace's distribution fee, said Rusty Rueff, the chief executive of Snocap, which will manage the e-commerce service.
