p2pnet news view | Music:- 100% compatible, eh?
Yesterday korporate download sites HMV, Woolworths, 7digital, Digitalstores, Tescodigital, Tunetribe, and Play.co launched a new ’100% MP3 compatible’ logo devised by the Entertainment Retailers Association.
The idea was/is: companies taking part will carry the tag so consumers we’ll know their MP3 downloads will play on PCs, Macs, and portable music players.
“Someone ought to tell them ‘consumers’ have known that for years, but the corporate entertainment cartels have spent hundreds of millions of dollars trying to stop them from doing it,” p2pnet said.
Anyhow, what about some kind of MP3 store guide?
Linspire’s Michael Robertson was thinking the same thing. So he’s organised a list under the statement »»»
Don’t buy DRM tracks (like those from iTunes) because they come with restrictions which limit how you can use the music you buy.
Instead make your purchases from one of the growing list of MP3 stores listed below.
The MP3 store guide is a promotion tool for Robertson’s own MP3tunes Locker, pure and simple. But still …..
The guide has two sections – korporate stores so far including: AmazonMP3,Lala, Napster, Rhapsody, Walmart, and 7digital; and, indies / “partial” (how can you have “partial” indies?) AmieStreet, Audio Lunchbox, GreatIndieMusic, Masterbeat and PureVolume.
If you want to see (an)other site(s) added, email Robertson at mp3storeguide @ gmail dot com.
