Mp3.com Part 2?

As reported everywhere on the planet, Robertson is making a second attempt at the online music business. This time it is called MP3Tunes. While I'm impressed with his persistence I'm not sure I believe. For one I was a big fan of MP3.com and I'm still steamed that he screwed that up. But mostly I already think that anything over .50 a song is too much for commercial music. I'm pretty sure that .88 a song is too much for unknown, unsigned artists. What do you think?

Back in the day, I signed up for Emusic.com. It was $10 per month and you could download as much as you wanted in mp3 format... no DRM.

They had a suprising amount of good music (Miles Davis, Belle & Sebastian), especially loads of good independent musicians.

Then they got greedy (who would have ever expected it?) and limited to 10 downloads per month.

Alas.
